Hi! Haven't actually posted on TalkBass for years, and I'm much more of an electric bass player myself, but my father has played jazz double bass for over 50 years, and now in his old age he's struggling with having to choose between high string tension which does not play well with his arthritis, and having a clean sound on his double bass. He's been looking everywhere for possible solutions, but likely wouldn't be finding these forums or asking the questions on here. I believe he uses Spirocore 3/4 Orchestra Light (so, 3885 Weich). His bass is on the smaller side of 3/4 basses, I believe a 40-inch scale. Do you think it would really be impossible to try and fit a 1/2 string set on there, like the Spirocore Solo 1/2 (3871, i think?) tuned to GDAE? I really hope there's some way to help him find a sweet spot between a lower string tension and still retaining some clarity in his sound.
