I've decided to start offering my old strings up for recycling, so for the price of a few quid into the Basschat coffers I'll pop them into almost-certainly used padded envelope sealed with too much cheap duct tape and post them off to you. I really don't like throwing things away that could still be of use, so this appeases my conscience and helps BC at the same time.

Up for grabs in round one are

2 x Fender 45-100 Nickel

1 x Status 40-100 Standard Roundwound.

I'm not going to police the donations as I know we're all honest gentlefolk, but £3 per set sounds like a good starting point to me. I change strings fairly often so these should all have plenty of zing in them.

They're been trimmed, but not drastically, to jazz bass length (I'd say tuning head +6")

Wasn't a BCer running a charity to send used strings to those who can't afford in poorer countries?

PM me your address and I'll get them off to you, please feel free to donate your money to a charity if you'd rather.

As long as some old strings get used and someone worthwhile gets a few quid then I'm happy.

Sorry, I should have changed the ad - the Status strings are now on another bass, but I'll let you know when any more come along.

Thanks! I need a used set of flatwounds for one of my basses (it's from the 60s so I think it sounds better with well worn ones!)
