There’s never anything wrong with having a few extra bass strings lying around — just in case. Or, grab some single strings in a couple of different gauges that are different than the set you’re using, that way you can see what you like best.
Our Short Scale Nickel-Plated Steel Roundwound have a taper at 32″ from the ball end. This is the ideal taper-length for most 29″ and 30″ scale basses.
