    I’m with you, dude. I’m just super careful pulling them off.

    You guys must not understand how nice it is once they lose their zing and get that big, nice, James Jamerson fundamental going on.

    It's a pain to take them off most basses. The curly parts that went around the tuning posts are tough to thread back through the bridge holes. I used to boil them with a drop of dishsoap to get the finger funk out of them, and then dry them with a good towel. They don't sound new, but they'll last for awhile.

    Why are you so intent on saving them?

    Re-using bass strings without breaking?

    Does anyone have tips for reusing bass strings without breaking them?

    I have a set of flats that I adore, they've been on my bass for 3.5 years and went through 40+ gigs... but the bass they're on is calling out for a change.

    It'd be heartbreaking to break one of them when stringing them back up in the future. There's a variety of opinions out there but figured I'd poll folks here.
