I am looking to turn an Ibanez 5 string Mikro Bass in to a tenor bass, going from A-F, and am looking for the proper string gauges and the best source for them. I would prefer to get short scale naturally, but cant seem to find them, and would also like to get flatwound, but can live with round or tapewound. So far the best solution I can find is on the D'Addario site, but they are long scale: D'Addario Single ProSteels .085 Long Scale PSB085 for the A D'Addario Single ProSteels .065 Long Scale PSB065 for the D D'Addario Single ProSteels .045 Long Scale PSB045 for the G D'Addario Single ProSteels .032 Long Scale PSB032 for the C D'Addario Single ProSteels .028 Long Scale PSB028W for the F I have looked on juststrings but can't seem to find a good set there of matching string types, even with buying single strings. I was thinking I could buy a set of strings near the gauge I wanted and then use just the A,D and G strings and then buy comparable guitar strings for the C and F. would this set of Bass VI strings work? then just omit the highest string: BVI-086 - Bass VI String Sets - Electric Bass Guitar or this one: Hybrid Bass String Sets Any suggestions, ideas, or links would be very helpful and appreciated. Thanks much.
