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.
