D'Addario EX:160 Electric Bass Steings Medium Woun

By: on 18 January 2022
I finally got some new bass strings , always harsd as the sound changes so much ! But my low E was completely dead sounding so I did it ... Had to adjust my amp settings and the pedals I use as the brighter strings make a difference , it was great to hear a more clear sound , but I am still adjusting my settings on my old acoustic valve amp to find the warmth again, It is not the same but it sounds good ... settings adjust as the strings settle in ... Might not change my strings for another 4 years..... Piano's never do .
