Paging Tenor Bassists

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Hamish, Aug 2, 2002.

  1. Hey everyone

    I have an old set of Rotosound SS Roundwounds in Super-Light guage (30-50-65-75) and was thinking of using them on my Ibanez SR400FL tuned as a tenor bass. Plan is to combine this with my EBS Octabass for some serious experimentation ;).

    I was wondering what people feel about the appropriateness or inappropriateness of these guages, and what the change in tension on the neck might be. Also, what strings and guages are other Tenor Bassists using on their instruments?

    Thanks for your input.

    Hamish. :cool:

    probably will need to give the bass a quick once-over for truss rod adjustment, intonation, saddle height, and nut, but those gauges look right.

    go for it!
