    My dad brought me home a couple of C strings cause I string my bass E - C and have to order the C seperately. Anyway, the C strings are ghs standard long scale roundwounds and I'm wondering if I should pair them up with ghs sets. Normally I use D'addario XLs, but I don't know if there would be too much of a tonal difference between the low 4 strings and the top one. If I should use all ghs strings, what 4 string set should I buy to go with these?

    i doubt it'd make a difference that anyone could hear. you might be able to if you try. but if you run through any effect any difference will probably be buried.
