    Measuring Bass Scale Length
    You cannot always tell the strings you need just by the scale length of your bass. Some basses are strung through the body, and the distances from the bridge to where the ballend locks in or the distance from the nut to the pegs are not standard on all guitars. The best way to figure out the correct strings for sure is to:
      1) Assuming your bass has strings on it, mark the lowest pitched string (while on your bass) at the nut with a marker.
      2) Remove the string.
      3) Measure the distance from the inner edge of the ball end to the mark you just made.
      4 ) Record this length, and refer to the following chart:

      Length String Scale Required
      Up to 32 inches DAddario Short
      32 to 34 inches DAddario Medium
      34 to 36 inches DAddario Long

    Great Flats!
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I've tried several other brands of flats and these work best for me. They're a bit brighter than most other flats, but that's what I like. They also have a nice mid range growl and the lows don't get too thuddy sounding. Plus, they have a bit more tension than round wounds. I can get low action with no fret buzz.

    Smooth and shiny
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I haven't put these recommended flats on my new Ibanez AEB5E Acoustic Electric Bass Guitar yet, but they look and feel as good as any flats I have ever used. I'm looking forward to the great combination.
