D Addario Made a Balanced Tenion am looking for

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by InsaneBassninja, Dec 8, 2013.

  1. Now for the 5 string is using a .145, .107, .80, .60, .45. (Over all 42lbs of Tension.)
    Would adding a .32 for High C screw up the Balanced or would it not?

    I should also add its for my six stirng bass.

    It would be lower tension, around 38-39 but because it's a higher pitched string you kind of want the tension to decline especially after the G string, when you get into C, F string territory. A C string at 42 lbs of tension would be quite uncomfortable for me.

    For what it's worth, I pretty much exclusively play 6's now and have for 3 years-ish.
  3. I just bought a 6 sting my self also... part of my reason for adding a 32

  5. Heck I use that place all the Time its a wounderful site. Not sure about the Ciril K strings those. Winch am tinking about Changeing my Piccolo bass to a High C so am thinking about geting a .08 or .09
  6. Not sure about Circle K Strings though.
    :rolleyes: Well you never will if you do not try them.:eyebrow:
    Just pointing it out, since Circle K Strings came around it has been a lot easier to find balanced sets and bigger ganges.
    It's almost like these string companies saw someone doing things right and started copying them. think. interesting.
    69 ganges to chose from, free shipping on orders over $50, string are very durable and long lasting, and the string formula they use blends very well from string to string.
    :confused: what more do you need :confused: what more could you want :confused:
