Welcome to this new sub-forum for Innovation double bass strings.
I've been approached by Innovation and asked to host this area, so I'll be around to answer any questions about the company's products, as well as any general questions that people may have - (bass related, that is!). Please allow me a day or so to reply (though, of course, i'll try and be quicker) but I may need to go back to Tony for more in-depth questions. (He's Innovation's chief tech and the guy who actually hand winds many of the strings)
We're hoping to incorporate some special offers along with announcements of new lines, and I'm working on trying to get some kind of trial system going so that people can try out any set of Innovation strings that they might be interested in for a week or so without the usual expense that tends to go with it.
I'm also going to be working with Innovation to both develop the existing range of strings and create some new lines, and to this end, I'm hoping you might help me by giving me your views on any Innovation strings you have tried (especially if you decided they weren't for you!); as well as telling me what you'd like to see in a new string.
I'm currently putting together a questionnaire which I'll post a link to as soon as I've finished testing it - it would be a great help if you could find a few moments to fill it in.
To give you an idea, two things that I personally think could be of interest are; first, a lower tension jazz/classical string (there are a lot of guys new to double bass who are after something a little easier on their hands) and secondly, a string that is guaranteed to work well with a magnetic pick-up. But if you have any other thoughts, please let me know.
As for now, watch this space!
