    Now for the 5 string is using a .145, .107, .80, .60, .45. (Over all 42lbs of Tension.)
    Would adding a .32 for High C screw up the Balanced or would it not?

    I should also add its for my six stirng bass.

    It would be lower tension, around 38-39 but because it's a higher pitched string you kind of want the tension to decline especially after the G string, when you get into C, F string territory. A C string at 42 lbs of tension would be quite uncomfortable for me.

    For what it's worth, I pretty much exclusively play 6's now and have for 3 years-ish.

    Not sure about Circle K Strings though.
    :rolleyes: Well you never will if you do not try them.:eyebrow:
    Just pointing it out, since Circle K Strings came around it has been a lot easier to find balanced sets and bigger ganges.
    It's almost like these string companies saw someone doing things right and started copying them. [​IMG] interesting.
    69 ganges to chose from, free shipping on orders over $50, string are very durable and long lasting, and the string formula they use blends very well from string to string.
    :confused: what more do you need :confused: what more could you want :confused:
