Multiple Basses – Switch Routines! (Talking Technique)

Love options? Me, too.

have 4-string, 5-string and 6-string basses (I know there are way more, but those three serve all my needs). Sometimes when switching from one to the other, it takes me a second to adjust. This is even true when using different basses with the same number of strings. It’s also the case with the same brand, same number of strings and equal string spacing!

The bridges of my Marleaux basses have little riders that allow for adjusting the string spacing. Even when those are set exactly the same, on the same model with the same number of strings it still feels different!

So I developed a few routines to help me do the switch with more ease.

Whether you are switching between different numbers of strings, models or string spacings, you will appreciate these drills!
