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

What is your overall opinion of this product?
I have these on my acoustic bass guitar and a short scale set on my Hofner "Beatle Bass". I love flat wound strings for bass, and these are fat and warm without being dark and muddy.
