    i want to setup an acoustic 5 string bass with EADGC tuning. does anyone know of a phosphor bronze like C string (for acoustics)? or should i use a regular 6 string set (nickel rounds)?

    Thomastik-Infeld makes AcousticBass strings in six string sets -- phosphor bronze. They're .035, .041, .053, .068, .086, and .118. All roundwounds over nylon cores -- I'm assuming they'd be crazy low tension, what with the nylon cores and extremely light gauges.
