    Ok, I have recently re-strung my 5 string bass with the E thru C strings instead of the normal B thru G. It was awesome until I broke the "C" string tuning it... :( As being a bass player I'm not used to breaking strings, now I know why guitarists get so frustrated when they break a string. Altho guitarists don't have to spend 30$ for one pack of strings. Can you buy a single high "C" string for the bass? Does anyone know if and where I could get it? I bought a pack of D'Addario's for a 6-string bass just for the "C" string. I don't feel like spending another $30 for one string.

    I always buy single C strings from www.juststrings.com. I like to ge them heavier than the standard D'Addario 6 set. I know they have a 35 available for about $4.50.
