Hey guys, completely new here but I just had to sign up for this. Not sure if I'm posting in the correct thread. So I got myself an Epi Viola bass and totally love it. But, due to my incredibly sweaty hands I got through the stock strings in about 3 weeks. I use Elixirs on my guitars and swear my life on them. Love the tone and feel so I went ahead and got myself a set for the bass. And that was when I learned my (expensive) lesson about long scale strings on short/medium scale guitars. So, after a day searching and reading about what coated strings I can get to replace them, I'm coming up with zilch. Are there no coated short/medium scale strings? I'm looking at the Black Diamond Black Coated and DR K3 Coated strings but can't find any information on what their scale lengths are. And if there aren't any coated strings for the scale length, what would you recommend I use? Preferrably rounds since flats and other types of strings are rarely, if at all, available here in my country. Thanks!
