My strings sound like new! Fisholene Dipping

Post by beagle » Thu Apr 01, 2010 8:46 am

Spurred on by all the talk of boiling strings and soaking them in meths etc ... I had a look online and found a growing following of people who soak strings in Fisholene oil.
I had some lying around and soaked an old crusty set of strings overnight.
So I fitted them to my 'bass', hooked up my tuna and sure as roe.. when i played the song 'Smells like Breem Spirit' to my band mates at last nights practice, they had to leave to room from the sheer power.
Has anyone else tried this cause it's really something else? :wink:

Ok, that sound like fin, but you don't need to carp on about it.
Fish oil is brain food, and good to take when trying to learn scales.

I've not hooked any of this as I am vegan
the substitute product for Animal rights conscious players
is 'Wankorama' which also increases wrist speed

I can't endorse this however as i am also Catholic

Your endorsement for that product would of been appreciated and stimulating but at the cost of going blind, and 1000 years in purgatory... I'd rather stick with the fisholine or have dull sounding strings! :lol:

Yes very much so ... and it also makes a valuable contribution to your daily Omega 3 and iron requirements... (Great for you pregnant bass player chickies out there) ;-)
