Hi, I don't play bass, but I have a friend in need. She recently purchased a 5 string bass, and it was tuned BEADG, but she wanted it in Eb standard with a high Bb but when she tried the highest string broke. What string gauge should she be using for this?

Surely you mean a high B?

If she wants to tune it like a guitar in Eb but missing a string, let her; why stop her? But TS, buy a back of 6 string bass strings and discard the low B. Use the E, A, D, G, and C strings and downtune accordingly. You might need a new nut though.

this is the best idea, though they do make string packs for a five string that the extra is high rather than the conventional low (usually says high C somewhere on the pack) tho they are rather hard to find

this. women don't even listen to music, tis a mans domain.

you could use regular gauge 6 string, as suggested. I might suggest slightly thicker ones?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
