Upright Bass Strings for Sale in Portland

String choice can be a very personal thing, not to mention an ongoing search for some players. Our Portland location stocks a wide variety of strings for all styles of play.


The most common question that I get is "How often should I change my strings?"


The answer is not cut and dried. Basically, If you sense that your strings aren't sounding and performing like they did when fresh and newly "broken in", then it's probably time for a change.



Try cleaning the strings with a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a bit of clean rag.


Keep rubbing string with a fresh section of rag until the string wipes clean.


If the sound of the string does not improve after cleaning, it's time for a change.
