Hey, I'm still on my second set of strings, which I put on my bass sometime in early September. Now the strings are getting dirtier to the point where my fingers (right hand) will "stick to the string, causing me to play a note a beat too late, occasionally. On the other hand, I really don't want to change my strings because I hate that new string tone and I LOVE the sound of dead strings (the level of dead mine are at, anyway). Any advice?

i know just what you mean. I use GHS fast fret to clean the strings and they sound the same but without the stickiness. Your fingers glide fantastically. Its only like £5 here in the UK. Get some and you will see what i mean

Ahh yes, boiling strings.

That new string tone.


... for 6 hours.

He said he doesnt like the new string tone so it will clean his strings up a bit but give him that worn out string tone after a few hours playing.
