apologize if there is already a thread about this but i couldn't find it and can't find anything to help me from google so here it goes. I currently have 2 4's and a 5 string all standard tuning (although i'm thinking of switching one 4 to BEAD). So i've never restrung any of them which i should probably do to. but i'm looking at getting a 6 string cause i like the idea of a bigger range. but IMHO the point of playing bass is bringing the thump, being the booty....the list goes on and on but to be the low end of the band so the idea of a string higher than G.... well i just don't like it.(to each his own if you want higher strings thats your desicions not trying to start anything) So What gauge strings do i need to string it F# B E A D G?? as a matter of fact is there a chart where i can see what a good gauge for each string is or something??? cause like i've said i have never re strung any of them and should probably start doing that as one of them is like 8 years old and has orginal strigs and probably wouldn't sound like horse mess if i did.
