    i have a little problem getting the proper string gauge for my six string bassguitar.

    i tune my bass as follows (from low to high):

    B - F# - B - E - A - D

    Now, for the low B i'm going to use 130, but the problem is for the other strings.. I guess i need to go a thin as possible..

    Anybody got a suggestion? Would this be an idea:

    130 - 90 - 70 - 50 - 30 - 25(does this exist at all?)

    i've seen those gauges, those would probably work fine
