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

I have used D' Addario flat wounds for years on my Basses. I love the deep mellow sound they produce. Smooth for your fingers and no zip sound as you slide up and down the frets. Love them!

A Little Work

Product Review

When finished installing these strings I felt "Now that's the sound I am used to". But it took a little work as the string were just barely to short. It took a little silk trimming as the ball end silk ovelapped the bridge saddle. Once that was done the strings tuned and intonated perfectly on my Gibson SG Standard. These strings feel great and sound phenomenal. On my Fender Mustang PJ they went on like a dream and sound just as good.

Nice tone

Product Review

I never played with flat wounds before, but I wanted my P Bass to sound distinctly different from my Jazz bass. These flat wounds accomplished that. If you don't know the difference in tone, check out some comparison videos on YouTube. There are plenty. The feel is a little odd at first for someone who has only ever played round wounds, but that feeling is easily overcome. The tone is great on the P Bass. It gets you closer to that original P bass tone. This is a standard D'Addario string pack, it's exactly what you would expect.

Smooth

Product Review

D'Addario chromes are the only strings that go on my basses. They're smooth and have a great tone. They hold up a long time with reasonable care.

Great Flats!

Product Review

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.
