The answer is that I got a 5-string set of TI's. Yeah. I know. If I haven't made three more albums by this time next year something is very wrong.

Or get this 4-string set:
and add a B string from here:

Or build a 40,60,80,100,120 set from here:
com/GHS-Precision-Flats- Flatwound-Bass-Strings-- Singles-Build-your-own-String- Set_p_842.html
Or get these, which feel much lighter than they are:
I've never put flats on a 5-string, so I didn't realize that the selection of sets is more limited. This is where Jason is really useful because he carries singles of so many brands and you can just add a B to a four string set."
