Piccolo Bass String Gauges


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I have a strange desire to get a set of piccolo bass strings to tune my fretless headless bass EADG up an octave. What gauges should one use for these? (Ideally I'd like ones that give me the same tension as my Elites S/S 45-105 as my trussrod is deceased and if the tension is much greater there'll be too much bow in the neck).

I don't play D'Addarios, but this D\'Addario pdf shows all the gauges of their sets and separates, and provides tension figures for all their strings tuned at different pitches.


There are lots of string vendors on the internet but I've been getting mine direct from Smith, so can't help you there.
