    Does anyone know were I can get a set of string
    for my 6-string ABG?
    Tuned EADGBC maybe something like 100-80-60-40-29-20.

    when I was playing a "tenor" 5 string... I would buy a 4 string set and a single .032

    I'm sure you could do the same. with just about any brand. My current favorites are made by SIT and D'Addario. SIT has the best rep and most choices for extended range basses.

    Thanks James.
    But I'am looking for a set with a top E string around 20?

    right.... a 4 string set and 2 singles should do you.

    D'Addario goes to .018 on their Nickels

    SIT has been the leader in ERB.... I know ALL the 7 through 11 string Benavente are strung with SIT strings. THey make them as thick and thin as they've been made.

    As a matter of fact... Mark Sellers had a 6 string Vortex strung E-A-D-G-B-E with SIT rounds
