    Hi there people

    i've come to realyse that finding 1/2 rounds or flats for that matter is almost an impossible task for a 6 string bass... is there any company, i know only of d'addario , that produice a 6 string set of half round string? .... are they any good?

    One more thing, what type of string do you use on your fretless basses? this is mostly dirrected to the high C user... but i'll appreciate any answer to these question :)

    You may want to give Status Graphite in the UK a try - they ship worldwide for about the same cost as a US dealer. They have both flats and halfwounds listed for sixes. I have their double-ball flats on my one Steinberger Spirit, and like them very much!

    I have a set of D'Addario 1/2rounds on my DeArmond Starfire right now. I like the sound, but find them to be a bit sticky.

    Good luck!
