I just purchased the Ibanez short scale 5-string miKro to use as a practice bass. I would like to darken the tone by changing the strings to something like DR Sunbeams. Does anyone know if the mediums will be too long? I don't see any 5-string DRs that are short scale, but I would like a rounder less bright sound. Any other advice about what to do would be appreciated. Changing pups is a possibility but I don't know if it's worth it for such a cheap bass.
