Slack B string on fortress

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Gingerfish, Jul 6, 2004.


  1. i recently played a 5 string fortress in a shop and though it was the first 5 that i have played i thought that the B string was awfully slack and this put me off a little, i was wondering if this cud simply be over come with different gauge strings and a little tinkering with tuning controls? if this is not possible or you think that there are much better 5 strings out there for £650 (i think roughly US$8-900) can anyone recomend them to me or say what i can do to sort this.
