    I have a 97 Modulus Q5 that I'm looking to get some low tension strings for. The reason for the lower tension strings is because it doesn't have the truss rod and the action is a little high for my taste. So, I'm guessing that a lower tension set would probobly do the trick. I'm currently using Ken Smith Custom Balanced Strings 44-130. I really like these strings on all my other basses but this one. They just feel to tight, and it makes tapping a little tough. Any recommendations would be great. I know it's tough with the Q's because they seem to be longer than most basses when it comes to picking strings.
