After ~45 years, I've come to the conclusion there's no such thing as a "regular" bass string that predictably fits properly.
I want fairly heavy flats to try to get the tension up because it's short-scale, and they are expensive for short scales relative to buying, say, Fender 9050*s...especially if they don't fit! (regular Fender bass strings don't even properly fit Fender
toploading basses, but I digress)
Short scale flats start at about $30, which is a lot to waste on something you might not be able to use.
I've religiously avoided short scale basses because of this nuisance.
