    just curios.
  2. Try D'Addario XL's, order the smaller guages from your local music store. And buy a standard 4 string set when its in sale. If its a realy short scale you could use guitar strings, you have to put a small washer on the guitar strings to keep them from pulling through the bridge. I play 5 string with a "C" string and seven string I buy all my standard sets on sale and the extra strings in groups of six from my local store. D'Addario carries a lot of different guages.
