Hey all.

So at the moment I'm using Ernie Ball Power Slinky's (55-110) but I want thicker strings. I don't know why but I have an obsession with getting thicker strings.

So I have 2 questions.

1) Can someone please find me some thicker strings, preferable round wounds?

2) Will I damage my bass if I use thicker strings in E standard and drop D??

Thanks.

Thanks, I've been looking on the web for thicker strings but the only thicker strings I found were flat wound.

You could probably get a 5 string set and not use the G... www.stringsdirect.co.uk has an awesome selection of strings+the prices are quite good

Another option is to try American Ebay sellers that will ship internationally, especially with DR coated strings, although there's always the risk of customs wanting their cut which usually ends up in you paying the same as you would have over here, but waiting quite a bit longer

Are those Elite Stadiums good for 35" scale?

I'm gonna have to get a set, then. Maybe it'll even be my permanent switch from D'Addario and DR. Any idea how good the low B is?

Aye, it isn't bad. They're a damn good set of strings across the board.


Any idea what the thickest 4 string set is then?

50's are the thickest I can find, unless you want a 5 string set, then you can get 65's if you leave the G off... Actually Deleriumbassist has a point, have a look for yourself, it's not that difficult

Is it honestly that difficult to do some research yourself? It tells you what the heaviest string gauge the Elites have on stringsdirect, that link given to you earlier.


Not really, I'm just tired from my exams.

I'll look on the site before I get a warning.

It really is a HUGE pet peeve of mine when people don't do simple research, especially when the information is given.


Sorry.

I'll remember that.
