    Can anyone suggest a brand of string that would be good to use with an Ampeg baby bass?

    Thomastik Spirocore solo gauge are my favorite strings on the baby bass.

    Another vote for Spiro solos tuned to regular pitch here. Perfect for the Baby Bass. "Regular" double bass strings seem like too much for some reason.

    Spiro solos tuned to regular pitch are what I used on mine. Never occurred to me to try anything else.
