Okay, I'm home sick and tried a thread search, but couldn't find a quick answer to my question and don't feel up to an in-depth search. I have a Sadowsky V5, swamp ash body, morado board. It's a great bass, but I hate the feel of the strings, the tension is too high. The previous owner thinks they are D'addario nickels. They sound fine, but I'd like a softer feel. For reference, I love the DR Lowriders on my Lakland, and am thinking of putting some on my Sadowsky, but wonder if the difference in scale (35" vs 34") would change the feel on the Sadowsky. My question is, how is the tension on Sadowsky strings? I can deal with medium but prefer low tension, the high tension strings it's got just don't work for me, I actually got a blister under my callous after a 5 hour practice.
