    on my main bass I have all gut set. Maybe I'll buy a folding bass for air travels, but I think it's difficult mounting on this a gut set, because to the difficulty of maintaining the tuning each time.
    What kind of strings do you suggest similar to gut but with much stability?

    I've seen Thomas Morgan playing in Italy last year, he took with him D&G gut strings and used whatever E&A string was mounted on the rented bass. Maybe you could try to do the same mounting E&A spiro solo downtuned, so you shall worry about the tuning stability only of two strings.
