If they made them heavier atleast 145 down I'd get me a set of those Pink strings and put them on my White Bass.

I got custom sets for my six string with special delivery two years ago, just to use at our xmas shows. Too expensive to get them delivered, so I just use them on four string occasionally. I did get a VERY good deal on S.I.T. strings (non pink), I use them on some of the basses...

Pouring rain, faithful audience under umbrellas, dancing couples, we did well. Stefan (Elvis) aroused a hornet's nest situated under the floor tiles on the stage, making him take funny dance steps at the end of the night. Sad to see them fly into the PAR-64 spotlights, I like hornets...

And...
I changed my rig option in the last minute. GB ShuttleMax 12.0 with four D112XLT's and the Avalon U5 in the beginning of the tone chain. Do I have to say the bass tone was devastating...?

Would $40(USD) bucks shipping (flat rate, unless the order is massive) seem high to you? Just Strings runs pink DR's in the $32-41 (USD) range per set. Blue and red are in the same range but black is less.

Pink six string sets are not available in standard stock, so they are a bit more expensive to get. Others are no deal...

Hey, Roger.... do you have a contact to a promoter who might be interested in bringing a TOP notch Elvis act to your country? We're looking to get Ryan back to Europe.
