Thread subject: STATII.COM: For all things Status-Graphite :: Hotwire double ball bass Strings

Posted by dslapster64 on 30-11-2022 03:47

Hello everyone. After almost 16 years and I am the owner of a Status Graphite Kingbass again here in the USA (I am a transplanted Brit). but I am having trouble finding strings that fit my bass here in the States. Does anyone sell Hotwire strings that I can buy over there? I'll gladly have them shipped here.

Thanks for the reply. I have tried to buy on the site, but I have had no response as yet. Does anyone know any Double Ball strings that will fit the Kingbass? the E string ball is too large on other string brands Ive tried. Also, Can headless basses be strung with regular strings?

Yes of course you can use regular strings by using the grub screws at the end of the headstock. Just thread the strings under the loosened screws and then cut the string once it is tight. That should do it!

Thank you so much, I will definitely try this. I use my credit card on the main site to buy the double ball strings, but nothing happened. Does the online shop still exist do you know? Hopefully the information did not get lost in cyber land. Thanks again..
