so after circus band practice last night, and a conversation with chillguru about the band, I went ahead and paid a crapload of money for new upright bass strings.
No joke, I could have bought a new bass guitar for the price. Ouch. But this is going to be my musical gig for the foreseeable future so I really needed to replace the 14 year old orchestral strings with some pizzicato-oriented strings.
Also scored a wheel so I can teach my bass to be a unicycle.

Ramen for lunch this month! woo!

for the band? no.
The current leader is Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band, but it's rather unwieldy.

after extensive multi-day research, I ended up going with Pirastro Obligatos. They get great reviews for Kay basses, and for jazz/blues/folk style pizz playing.

Also they weren't $350 like the Velvet Anima's that I really wanted. *grin*
