    Hi! I play a Tacoma acoustic 5 string bass and I cannot find the 5th string (B, 0.130). I live in Madrid (Spain) and I have searched in every store with no success. Now I am searching in the net but it seems that there´s no 5 string set for acoustic bass... Please I need help! I have changed the other 4 strings and now the 5th string is too old and it sound is bull****.
    Any help will be welcomed! Thanks!

    Gui :help:

    A quick check of shows that there are a few brands of 5 String acoustic sets:

    Dean Markley : DMS-2655D

    DR: RPD5_45

    Rotosound: RS445LD

    Thomastik Infield: TOI_AB345

    Not sure if they'll ship to Spain, but you can at least see the stock numbers.

    Thomastik should have no problem getting strings to Spain. TI strings are made in Italy. Are Spain and Italy both in the EU? If so, there should be no problem at all. Hell, not even border taxes :D.
