HypnoBassMan Posted February 13, 2003 Share Posted February 13, 2003 Hello Group, I was tired of doing so much travel for my work (Hypnotherapy Certification) and being away from my bass! I'd be away from 2 to 3 weeks and I would quickly get out of practice. So, on my last trip I bought a new 5-String acoustic 5-string bass from Ibanez. The bass is pretty good acoustically and great when you plug it into an amp! (My regular bass is a 5-string Deluxe Active Fender Jazz bass.) Now I need some recommendations on new strings. The bass must have sat in the music store for quite a while because the strings were in bad shape. They gave me a new set of four strings to go with it. They didn't have a set of 5. At the time I figured that I'd pick up a B at another store. But I couldn't believe it! I went to about 4 stores in NY and no B string. Now it looks like I have to get a whole new set. So now, since I cant find a B string, I am looking for recommendations on good/great sets of strings for a 5-string acoustic/electric bass. Any ideas? I would go from medium to higher priced strings if they are worth it. Thanks BassBros! HypnoBassMan The deeper you go the better you feel! (True for bass and hypnosis.)
