Thank you Rasputin for your comment. There are some constructional reasons for the squeaking of the mormally used wound bass strings as you very well describe. On a well constructed wound bass string the squeaking can be eliminated. It can be confirmed on the video played by Smaro, where she is using silver wound basses on the 5th and 6th with no squeaking in the performance.Rasputin wrote: ↑Mon Jul 24, 2017 9:31 amIt's a wonderful sound.
I had not heard of metalonylon strings, but have often wondered why ordinary bass strings a nylon core and metal windings - which squeak as we know - rather than having a metal core and a squeak-free nylon coating.
Is there a technical reason for using ordinary wound strings for the 5th and 6th strings on this guitar? Are metalonylon strings available for E A and D on a standard guitar?
Thank you guitarrista for your kind comment. Since you took the time to post the same comment on each of the five threads, I am answering you in each thread also. You are saying in your kind comment, that my posting is breaking the rules of the forum. In each of the five threads (in my opinion) the subject is absolutely of unique interest to the guitarist who will visit the thread. Interest? How can we verify that there is any interest? The number of the views and the comments of the participants is a safe guide for one to verify if there is a unique interest in each thread. Also, in what period span these views and comments happened. Let’s see below the beginning dates of the threads and the total views, as of today, the 21 Sep. 2017:
