I know this is a pretty specific question. I have contacted a couple of shops here in Ontario (most of which don't even know a bass can be tuned in 5ths, who Red Mitchell was etc.) and they look through their computers and find out they can order them, as a full set. Is there anyone out there selling individual strings from this set? Most specifically, the low G? I used the whole set for a pizz recording project and it worked nicely for that, but I really don't like the top two under the bow. There are a ton of options for the other three strings. D's aren't an issue, and almost every set by every manufacturer has a Low C/B string, with solo sets (high A) just about as common. My bass doesn't do well with a solo F# tuned up to a G. I've tried several of them, and they all sound/feel tight and choked. I haven't tried a Mittel/Stark/high tension low A and tuning it down, but I assume I would just be creating a different tension problem. I prefer the Spirocore over the Obligato and Velvet Compas 180, and other than custom ordering a Gerold Genssler set, they are the only options I am aware of for a true low G string. A lot of shops list the full set on their website, but I don't want to have to start internationally calling Kolstein, Gage, Upton, Gollihur, Lemur, Bass Cellar etc. to find out it can't be done. Anyone have any experience with this?
