anyone out there know what kind of strings Bradley Nowell uses or just some plain and simple reggae strings. What kind of picks do reggae guys use? Also what are some reggae settings on amps....i know i should post that part in the ultimate settings thread, well i already did and just thought i would ask you guys again.
much thanks,

Well, I play a lot of ska, which is basically reggae but faster. You have to use a fairly low gauge string set, so I use 9's. Pickwise, anything past the yellow dunlop tortex is going to be too heavy, and it'll sound pretty harsh. Stick with the orange and yellow, whatever the number gauge is I forget. Amp-wise...I dunno, lots and lots of treble. Enough to give you a piercing migraine every time you hit that upbeat. That's what I do, anyway. Good luck!
