Thread Name: Acoustic Bass Guitar Strings
Subject: RE: Tech: Acoustic Bass Guitar Strings
Richard - sorry to have brought the incident up again. My main comments were more related to the advantages of being able to play acoustically. Many sessions would not welcome an electric bass at all - even if you could find a convenient socket. There's the portability issue - it's alright when you can park outside the pub, but carrying the whole caboodle around Broadstairs, Warwick, Sidmouth, Bromyard etc would be somewhat of a nuisance. As you've probably noticed, I've started using my little Art & Lutherie guitar a lot because it's easier to carry than my Yamaha - and also because I don't have to find somewhere to stash a Hiscox case !
