    D'Addario has a .132 in Chromes
    Ernie Ball has a .130 in Flats
    T-I has a .136 in Nickel Flat

    Why do you ask?

    Can't remember the gauge (maybe 130) , but I used a Chromes B string. It was bright and clear. It was a big stiff muther, and sounded great on my 34" scale G & L fiver. If there's ever a commercial market for F#, C#, G# flats;)...anyway somebody somewhere will be willing to custom make them. In the upright bass realm, a Thomastik Spirocore Stark B (flatwound steel) is a huge string.

    TI makes a .135 or .136

    AFAIK the Pyramid Black Nylon B is also really thick.

    The TI seems to be the biggest, but I bet the chrome has more tension.

    Ti is biggest and most flexible

    If you want a rigid string most rigid is La bella.
