I'm curious about your choice of Ashbory strings vs. UBass string (from RoadToad?)... What I remember Ashbory's are messy to use and don't hold up very well....
interested in your thoughts.
Nice to know about that source. I'm a big fan of Road Toad. I've used there strings on everything from super short scale (13") to "standard" scale (30") CBBasses. The guy that runs it will build custom sets (both length and diameter and number of strings for very little extra over their standard ukeBass sets.
Think about doing a progress build blog or slide show, I'd love to see it.
It was a true low E, three string, frettless bass tuned EAD. To achieve this low tuning, I used thick poly urethane chord similar to the strings that Road Toad sells. It worked really well and was snatched up when I made the mistake of putting a price on it at a music festival.
