GUEST,terry Washtub Bass: What kind of string & why? (150* d) RE: Washtub Bass: What kind of string & why? 28 Aug 07


I used to play the gutbucket about thirty years ago and have recently joined a new band (same banjo player). My problem is that the string (A gut string from an upright bass) is the same string I used back then. It's actually not in too bad a shape but I am trying to find another string to replace it. I would prefer the same type but have been unable to find a source that would sell me just one string and the price for a set isway to high. anybody out there who has any information please let me know. It would be lousy to get back on stage and have the string break.
                                             thanks
