    Anybody know where a guy could get a 6 string set of the compression wound variety ? They're actually for a 5 string Ric which I play with a high C string, so in the past I have bought 6 string sets and given away the low B. I'm also open to relatively bright, lower tension flats, I guess, but you don't often see them in 6 string sets, or as singles where you can get a string at around .030.
    I have tried Ken Smith Compressors and SIT Silencers on a 4 string Ric and liked them both pretty well, so I'd like to get into something like that on the 5. Where to turn ?

    Ken Smith compressors are always packed in 4 string sets, and the B and/or C is sold seperately.

    Just Strings or the like will have the 4 string set as well as the individual string to add to it. I just ordered a set of compressors and a tapered B to go with it.

    They were there in just a few days.

    Thanks. I'm happy to get the Compressors, I hadn't noticed they had the singles available.
