#sweepstakes I play epxoy coated neck fretless and have had a set of Thomastiks on it for a few years at least. My Dilema? Since the world has been sentenced to solitary confinement, the local Sam Ashe was not allowing visitors(ahem!). My poor bass! Boiling my strings with baking soda a few times in failed attempts to resusitate the Zombies didn't work. So I ordered a set of DRs online - expecting to be in dead-bass-strings purgatory for a week or two. Lo and behold - a bright light appeared in the heavens! The strings arrived at my door the second business day after I placed the order, and no shipping charges!?!? Nirvana. Once again peaceful and joyous muwah tones abound. And those wonderful Hi-Beam full-ranged frequencies have my Alembic pickups proudly wearing their, by-far favored, smiley face emojis again! Thanks Sam Ash. Enjoying my DR's.
