    I'm looking for new strings for my new bass

    It's a 30" thru bridge. I've tried short scale strings and long scale strings with neither really working great. So I guess it's medium scale that's needed. I can find what I need except for the "C" string. Is it okay to get a long scale roundwound string and just cut it to size?

    I've also seen Labella makes short scale thru bridge strings in different scales, but $55 plus is a lot to pay for an unknown string.
