    I 'm looking for a 4 bass strings set with
    these features :

    soft gauge
    040

    (good for fretless too)

    I like Vinci strings (I can't find it !!)
    and Ernie Ball (too much expensive)

    Which other strings can I try ?

    What kind of sound are you looking for?

    Do you know if you want rounds or flats or what?

    The prices can vary, for example, Pyramid strings are quite cheap in Germany and very expensive in the U.S.

    Vinci strings are back and very affordable. Saw them at the NY Guitar Show 4/23/16. Their website is:

    SE Como
    I wouldn't call $25 for pretty average NPS strings affordable, especially for a brand that was never very popular and disappeared for many years. D'addario, GHS, Ernie Balls, etc basic NPS can be had all day long for $15.
