    Are there any mainstream brands that make heavier gauge short scale strings? Best luck I've had has been a set of ghs boomers.. 50- 107 ...

    Anyone recommend me something higher? Heavier the better really. Because of the style of machine heads it does need to be shortscale strings. 30" scale bass

    Cheers!

    Perhaps use BEAD strings from a 5 string set?

    Am not aware of any short scale 5 string sets available ixlramp?

    I'm currently playing in b standard - got away with it in 45-100 which was crazy light. (daddario)... The ghs are definitely a step up . I will look into the la Bella/ Rotos and see what I can find - neither brand currently has a distributor in my country so may have to import.

    Anything else out there ?
