Sorry if this is redundant but all of the threads on the subject are technical and the OP's asking what if. I already made the leap, stringing an old PV Fury P Bass with used Sadowsky Flats I had. Just long enough to fit and surprisingly tight on the B string. A lot of tension, had to adjust the neck, but am pretty pleased with the overall tone and playability. I play blues and classic rock and occasionally feel the need to go below B, but don't dig the few 5ers I've had. I have great difficulty enjoying the sound of the G (no treble please) and probably won't miss it and will find more reasons to use B. I am running a Yorkville Bassmaster 400 head and Markbass 4x10. What I want to know from you long term BEAD users, is what you use, how you use it and why it works for you. Please include equipment details and genre of music you play. Thanks in advance!
