Short scale tenor strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Bassism, Dec 20, 2003.


  1. Hey,
    I picked up a bass for $100 a while ago. It's got great action and it's a dream to play.
    The only thing I don't like about it is the E string has no balls.
    So I'm thinking about tuning it tenor.
    My problem is that I can't find any short scale strings suitable for a tenor bass.
    Are there any other guys out there who play a short scale tenor bass and could give me some tips on finding strings?
    Also, assuming I could get the string around the tuning machine, would it be okay to put standard scale strings on it?
