    I'm just curious.

    Could you use upright bass strings on a regular bass?? Or would that just sound ridiculas? I'm not going to try it, i was just curious if there are people out there who do this.

    That'd be an expensive pair of strings to say the least.

    DB strings are too long and thick to be used on a regular bass. I suppose you could manage it if you raised the action but it wouldn't be worth it.
