Thread Name: Washtub Bass String Question
Subject: RE: Washtub Bass String Question
hiya,
i've tried a bass string, too expensive.
and i tried a brake cable, steel isn't fun.
and i tried cotton clothes line, a nice warm sound.
and i tried twine-rope, no way!
and i tried .080 gage vinyl weed whacker twine, yep!

i think it's perfect...
the white weed whacker twine is smooth to feel...
but,
the texture on the orange colored weed whacker twine
works FANTASTIC with a bow!
and a nice fat warm sound with a 17 gallon washtub...

by the way, i give info at each asking...
i make em,
i sell em,
tubs, sticks, twine's a plenty!...
new tubs, used tubs(seasoned) , kits, or readdy made...
