    Rotosound seems to be the only string manufacturer who has a 4 string BEAD set. I really liked the roto's when I played EADG, and I find it such a shame to buy a 5 string set and trow the Gstring away. It's a real waist in my opinion... So do the Rotos have a good B string? I tune a half step down and have a neckthrough 35" bass...

    Thanks
     
  2. I find B string in Roto Swings very loose and quieter than other strings. My bass is Ibanez BTB555 (35''). I think that You should buy Sadowsky Stainless Steel strings for a 5 string bass, they are great and B string is like a big bell;)

    I dunno, I'm using the 5 string Roto's, .130 B string, on a Gibson Tbird, and it sounds great to me.

    I have not played Rotos for a very long time. But I recall thinking that the Sadowsky Steels were in the Roto neighborhood. And they seemed to hold the growl for a while and have a great B string.
