#9 seems a bit excessive ? Whadduhya
think, strings grow on trees ? And why
ditch them just when they're getting
really good ?

Bassists should make the rules...not follow them. If it feels good, it IS good.

What is this "changing of strings" you speak of? These ways are foreign to me.

While I will be forced to change a set of round wounds every now and again when my meatfist technique renders one into 2 pieces, I NEVER change a B string. Ever. I hate all those shimmery overtones that come through with a clean B. It's like a piano without a damper.

OK I realize your domestic contract limits your frequency
of bass purchases [and lawd knows what else ... ] but the
strings can be removed, and put on your next bass so you
don't hafta break in a new set. Try it someday ... but be
very careful with the section that wraps the pegs, as you
can damage or break that section, and then you DO hafta
face up to breaking in new strings :-(
