I'm trying to make me an EUB, but i've got an issue: upright bass strings will cost me about the same price as it will to build the sucker. Standard bass strings are more affordable, and offer more options, but the scale options are limmited. is there any brand that's good for a fretless bass that has a really long playable part of the string for super long scale basses? or simmilarly is there a set of strings for upright bass that isn't eighty bucks? thanks for the help.
