    I really really like daddarrio nickels but can't find them for a six in medium gauge. Any help or recommendations would help me out tremendously! Anything similar that I could try? Does anybody know where to find these?

    I use a set of flatwound strings sold thru Carvin.com for six string basses. They're repackaged GHS Precision Flats, which I love for fretless. I believe the gauges run .26 to .128.

    On my fretless 6 I use a balanced .107 - .045 D'Addario set with a .032 and .135 added. I order my strings from bassstringsonline.com to put together these sets. Works really well for me.

    Your options expand a ton if you get 4 string sets and single B and High-C strings.

    (If your 4 string set is 45-105 / 45-100 / 40-95 then buy Twin Packs and you will save even more!)
