I have been looking into getting a Dragonfly 5 String Fretless Bass, from Michael Kelly, and I was hoping to tune it EADGC. Is this doable, and if not, does anyone know from experience how well the low B would ring out acoustically?

Any help in the matter is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It wouldn't need a nut change, because the strings would be smaller, and so would fit nicely.


fit nicely in holes made for strings much bigger than them?

A nut change would be needed and a set of 6 strings too

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

you could buy a normal 4 string set and look for individual C strings, but that might be inconvenient.

and without a new nut the strings would rattle around in the nut

ok, thanks. Anyone know how well that low B rings through then? Because that sounds like it could be a lot easier.

I havn't played that particular one but the one acoustic bass I have tried with a low b didn't have nearly enough sound projection, It basically just didn't work well.

Who's to say that one isn't different though

EDIT:

A nut change/file is only needed if the string is too big to actually fit into the nut.


The whole point in a nut is to hold the strings steady and secure, which is not going to happen if the hole is too big for the string
