I've got a few 5-string basses strung B to G, and since I'm yet not sure if I even like the B (great sounding, but not sure I like anything below E) I thought I'd pick up a set of six string DR High Beams to see how I'd feel about stringing my bass E to C. With a six string set, I figured I could always use it as a B to G pack if the C wasn't for me. I never realized the C string was so damn small! It kind of felt a bit weird having it. And the sound...I wasn't sure about it. Chords sounded nice, but can't really see much use for it. I'm sure it'd come in handy for solos, but I pretty much suck and solos are way out of my league at the moment. But the more I played it, the more I began to enjoy it. Didn't really feel I missed much without the low B. Then I switched back to one of my other basses and that B felt really nice. Nice like "Who needs a wimpy C" nice. I can easily see why folks opt for a six stringer to get the best of both worlds.
