: I notice that D'addario's low B string medium gauge is heavier than most brands. My new Carvin BB75 comes with Carvin strings .045, .065, .085, .105 and .128. I've just bought a D'addario XL medium gauge set and it comes .050, .070, .085, .105 and .135. How would affect this gauge differences (especially that of the low B) to my bass? should i setup my bass again? i can adjust action and intonation, but a truss rod adjustment seems very complicated to me. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
I've always had my bass set up again after a change in string guage. Especially a five string. The low B is a very sensitive adjustment, don't think you would want it's performance to be affected by anything. But, keep in mind that this advice is coming from someone that NEVER sets up his own basses. so picky about my basses that I sleep better knowing that it was set up by a pro who knows exactly what he is doing.....
