Blast from the Past By Jim Roberts
In the early '70s, Alembic installed Pyramid Gold strings on the modified Guild Starfire basses used by Jack Cassady of the Jefferson Airplane and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead. "They had this amazing, supple feel," recalls Rick Turner, "and we loved the sound - very different from any other flatwound strings. Those strings were a big part of the 'San Francisco bass sound.'"
