    I was hoping someone could help me find a set of flatwounds that would allow me to tune down to C standard on a 5 string.

    Wouldn't that be tuning up?

    I've been doing this for years - tune up half step to make the "B" a "C", et. al.

    Oh, and I'm subscribing to this one because I'm looking into the same thing right now.

    Yeah i thought about just tuning the low B to a C and then tuning my 1st string to whatever the high C would be two whole steps down

    I am kind of confused here...

    Do you want a 5 string set with a High C, but also have a Low B?

    You could do a set like B A D G C and tune the B string up to C...

    Many string manufacturers offer strings as singles, you just need to find someone who offers single strings!

    You can also get a 6 string flatwound set and put the E string aside. You could then always string up E A D G C as well.
