I don’t play my bass very often these days (just a phase), but when I do, I use DR Marcus Miller Fat Beams. ;0

These strings are stainless steel and wound tightly. They feel good on your right hand when plucking or thumping (or left if you are a lefty). I love them. I used to play Rotosounds, but they die soooo quickly. The DRs have a long life and look mahvelous.

Here’s a crowd sourced review on talkbass.com (a great bass player resource) http://www.talkbass.com/reviews/showproduct.php/product/1104/title/dr-fat-beams-marcus-miller/cat/17

Peavey T-40. Mmmm. I have one just like this (except mine has staining from use).

These 4-stringers are heavy. And I mean eighch double ee vee wai, heeeeveee. You can easily slay small woodland creatures with one swing from this axe. Possibly even mid to large sized, but that’s a different post. The pickups have some really cool, powerful wiring. You’ll have to look in the manual, I forgot. Sorry already.

This baby is also slap-able. I believe it was a monster slap machine in the 80’s. Currently, some people call it a poor man’s Rickenbacker. I’ve owned a Rickenbacker 4001. I don’t think it is a good poor man’s Rickenbacker. Actually, a poor man’s Rickenbacker is the Rickenbacker 4001/3, because you are poor after you buy it. 😀

But, seriously, play this gal (or guy) with a pick and you will get some aggressive tones (roundwounds required). I’ve also played my darlin with flats and she was more sultry. Still sounded great. It does have a massive bridge like a Rickey. It also has a metal nut. Metal. Nice.

The best part about this bass guitar is that you can pick one up for under $500 on used.guitarcenter.com or ripoffbay.

This was Fingerstyle Friday. Keep Thumpin!
