I love my D'addario strings, but I want to switch to stainless steel. I want to try Rotosound RS665LD strings, but I'm worried they'll taper before the nut or bridge or the silk will get in the way as such as my bass is 35" scale. Will they?

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

Yes, but from what I see on your profile, you don't own a 35" scale bass. =/

any sets of rotosound strings i have bought were much longer than i needed, so it should be ok.

EDIT: sorry i read the OP wrong, ignore me.
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

Yup. There is a little taper before the bridge on the B string, but just a little and it really makes no difference.

Thanks, I'll be trying some rotos then! Think it'll give me that ballsy low end growl with the midrange bark I want while still retaining a lot of treble?

Remember that if it tapers all you have to do is adjust the action on that string. simple fix really.
