piccolo string packs: good ones?

  1. Lately i've been taking my second semester in a college ensemble class where i just so happen to play bass (i do sax too) and my teacher seems to hate any form of bass describable as deep because it doesn't sound like his beloved piano. so, i'm thinking i might as well get a set of piccolo guages because as much as i love a challenge, wrestling runs above the 12th fret is a complete PAIN in my A$$. I was thinking about getting La Bella Electric Bass Hard Rockin' Steel Piccolo Bass Sets, .030 - .080, but i'm not sure if it'll work fine. i figure that a low E piccolo string is the same thickness as a D string on a regular set, so since my D string is .075, i figured this is probably good. can someone clue me in?
