i was pondering the idea of piccolo basses and am currently saving to get a bass for that purpose. my question is should i get a short scale bass or is a regular bass ok for this? and my second one is what strings would you suggest?

I've just in the last week bought some Piccolo strings to play round with, and am having great fun with them. I chucked them on my Warwick Corvette Std and haven't had any problems. Sounds brilliant, great fun to play with and best of all, fits perfectly into a song from my acoustic act.

As far as strings go you don't have a whole lot of options. D'addario do the most readily available set, and they are relatively cheap. I got some of those, and haven't a complaint.
