String set for Low G tuning? Where to get single string (175)?
Hi folks, I thought I´ll check if I could find little help from here with my "string problem"
Our tuning is Low G, F, A#, D#, G#
Custom set: 175, 105, 85, 65, 45
Currently i´ve had a lot of headache with combining string set as so far I haven´t found 175 string from anyone else than Warwick. And from their Dark Lord set I´ve been able to use 3 strings (135 is too thick for F). And it will cost bit too much to get Warwick´s Dark Lord set (55€) and 2 single strings.
Do you know is other brands manufacturing this thick strings? Problem would be solved if I could get that 175 as single string from somewhere. Other gauges would be covered with Warwick´s Black Label series Medium set.
Rotosound stainless. If that works it can happen.
Check Circle K strings. They have it all.
There are quite a few sources, are you USA, Europe, elsewhere?
Thanks for suggestions. Gotta check those.
I'm in Europe.
I checked some places (not yet the ones mentioned) but nobody had 175 thick string available as single.
Circle K looks promising :)
Singles by Pyramid including .170 .175:
I managed to nail a deal through local distributor and got custom sets ordered from Warwick :)
Try these guys:
I'm planning to order some soon. Just need more money to buy couple of sets. If you chose them,write about their customer service.
Is it to much? I know only for these guys in Europe that sells single Warwick Blacks. I need 70-90-110-145 and 70-90-110-140 for both of my basses. These strings are not so expensive and are almost equal to standard sets they sell. A little bit higher priced but for single string set are ok. Do you found a different dealer that has better price?
I was just mainly checking price for 175 and that price is very high compared to standard Black Label Dark Lord set which includes 175-135-105-85. That is usually around 50-55€ compared to single 175 in that site 36€.
For me Black label's Medium set plus single 175 does the trick and I got very good price for it via local distributor. I ordered 10 sets which was minimum for factory order.
If you'd be ready to "thin a tad" Warwick's Black label Low B set (135-105-85-65) could be option. 29€ at Thomann per set. How does that compare price of singles?
I play exactly with the same Low B set almost 5 years now. But I play a little bit hard with my right hand and hate the fret buzz :). On my standard G-D-A-E bass i have 50-70-90-110 and love them. Even the action is lower That's why I want to try something else for D-A-E-A and D-A-E-B tuning.
