Hi everyone I need some help here. I have finally decided that I need to use Heavy gauge strings because of the music that I play. I want to know if anyone has experimented or even found strings other than Dingwall that fit the damn thing. I am looking for the heavy gauge range (5 string) which starts at 50+ and higher. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Kris, you should contact the company Pyramid, they can make strings for your Dingwall in any size you want. http://www.pyramid-saiten.de/ H.P.

Thanks for the response groovemachine, I play in Drop D with the D dropped to a C so the strings are loose. I did get lucky and did find some at a Local Long and Maquaid. The strings were made by XL that were super long with gauge sizes .045, .065, .085, .105 which are .01 larger on the Low End. The little extra thickness does improve the tension. The only thing was that they do not sell a B that long, WHICH is alright because I only use it as an anchor. I did get the guy at Long and Maquiad to source me out some more sets that would fit and I will post the strings sizes once we experiment.

XL is probably the string model name made by the company D'Addario. Ken Smith string should fit.

Your right smallmouth_bass they are made by D'Addario, they also have a large set as well too, I don't know the model number but I will post once I find it.
