Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

So I made my self a ubass of sorts.My wife bought a cork screw in a real nice box at Goodwill. I got the box to make my bass with.Any how the only stings I could find only a hour away was Road Toad. I put them on and they don't even come up half way on the neck.As time went on I find that you have to streach the string all most to tune and then put in into the tuner.This is not too bad on the bottom three strings but that E string has kicked my butt. I am going to have some help.

Anyone got a better way? I am new to bass.

Are the Aquilla Thunderguts better than the Road Toads about streaching?

To a better note the bottom three strings sure sound good to me.

I'm not familiar with any of those strings.  Some folks have had great success using weedwhacker line.  Good luck!

Thanks Ted for the reply. I have some Thunderguts on the way,well see how those work.

I'm banging away on the three I have in tune till I can get help on the E string.(Small social circle) Help don't come around much.

Hope you have a good New Year
