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?
