    I just got a new (well...new to me) bass and it had Sheehan rotosound string on it....I like the grind and clarity of the strings....

    I want to try a set on another bass...BUT the problem is that (other than the lakland HoBo I just purchased) all I have are 5 string basses.

    I did some research and found out that Sheehan rotosound strings only come in 4 string sets.

    Question 1: Does Rotosound sell individual strings?

    Question 2: If so, what B would you recommend to compliment the other 4 strings?

    thanks for the input!

    Yep, Bass Strings Online is the place to get Roto singles.

    Really the only string that makes the BS66 set exclusive is the .043 G string. The other strings can all be purchased as singles.

    If you want to make a 5-String set add a Low-B. .130 or .135 will be great
