Balanced string recommendation again

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by InsaneBassninja, Jan 8, 2014.

  1. Hey I been Playing the 145,107,80, 60, 45, 32 set. its seems a bit too tight for my likeing. 145 is good for my Metal but I need some for Blues. I want my string B string to be a 135(Partly Because. I have too sets laying around in my room) one dead sounding the other fairly new. Any Ideas for the 135 set?
  2. :rolleyes: Have you tried that one brand yet?

    Well, when it comes to balanced tension there's obviously the Circle K .136 balanced tension set - I use it and it's flexible without being floppy.

    I've also looked at what gauges to use to build a balanced set of Daddarios from single strings, using their tension charts - based on a .135 B, you'd want .100, .075, .055 and .040 for the most balanced set.
