    I accidentally bought a 5 string pack of strings and I have a four string. I put the last four strings on my bass and threw away the top fattest one. It sounds good is this a bad idea?

    Hey man it's your money haha. Whatever the price was compared to a 4string pack is what you lost. Not too much money in comparison but It's not a good idea but not a bad idea. I mean little late to return them but if it's a mistake it's all good haha. Just try not to do it again:D

    It's fine. I would have kept the B string in case I ever wanted to try a BEAD tuning instead of EADG though.

    You could offer those B strings up for someone on here.
