5 string set EADGC

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by werbo1, Dec 29, 2004.

  1. Does anyone know of a place where ic an order a set of strings EADGC. Also would I have to modify the truss rod or anything on my current bass if i make the switch?
  2. I don't know of where you could buy a set like that but I know that you can custom order a C along with the other 4 strings so you get a similar string. "Custom order" is pretty vague, but I bet if you go to a general music store or a more guitarish oriented store and you ask them to order you that set, they will be able to.

    Many online sites (i.e, www.juststrings.com) allow you to order single strings. At JustStrings they have their single strings categorized by manufacturers and model, so you can order a standard 4-string set, and then get the matching "C" string that would go with that set.

    When using a set that I can't find the single strings for (such as DR Red Devils), I buy a 6-string set and just pack the "B" string away.
