    Anyone know if DR sells or will custom make any nickel strings (low riders or Sunbeams) in 110 or 90s which I need for Drop C# ?

    On there site:
    Any gauge listed can be made into a set custom made for you...special order them at your favorite local dealer!!

    They don’t list 110s, or 90s for any nickel strings but I read a previous topic where someone mentioned they custom ordered some nickel Low-Riders in heavier gauges for detuning.

    Id like to me able to play in D# standard also, would a 120 from there five string be too much tension on my P-bass when not dropped?

    DR's heavy set is 50-110. They do make singles in .115 and .120, among other gauges.

    I ordered Heavy sets for the SS LowRiders and SS Hi-Beams but was wondering about either the nickel Low-Riders or Sunbeams.

    DRS_LRN-95 - Electric Bass Lo-Riders Tite-Fit Nickel Plated
    DRS_LRN-100 - ""
    DRS_LRN-105 - ""
    DRS_LRS-110 Electric Bass Lo-Riders Tite-Fit Stainless Steel Bass .110
    DRS_LRN-120 - Electric Bass Lo-Riders Tite-Fit Nickel Plated

    Thats how JustStrings nickel low-riders section goes, for some reason there is no 110 in nickel.

    same thing with Sunbeams,

    Edit: I havnt seen 115 listed single or in sets anywhere, hook me up with some links if you got them, I've searched everywhere.
