Ever since I tried out balanced tension strings I just can't go back, the problem is that it's fairly costly. Currently I'm just buying Daddario XL (nickel plated steel) Singles in my preferred gauges, that ends up costing me 40€ for a single set of strings on my 5er (including shipping). I'd love to use Kalium strings but the shipping costs to Europe make that impossible. I have an issue with the balanced tension sets that daddario sells, mainly the A and E string are lower tension than the D and G (which makes no sense), 40 55 70 95, while I use 40 55 75 100, and I'd have to buy a single low B string, and not everyone carries extra long scale single strings, etc. It's a mess. Another issue is that nobody carries short or medium scale single strings for my shortscale bass. So are there other brands that I'm missing? Any string shops or music shops with a proper selection of single strings that you guys could recommend in europe (with low/acceptable shipping costs within europe) or basically any other solution to this problem? Thanks for any help.
