Title says it all
Labella has a .128
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?
D'addario makes a .132 in the Chromes.
Sounds like a good question for Jason at www.bassstringsonline.com
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.
Wanted to get a big flat wound B string is all
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.
Custom made steel flatwounds.
140 160 170 180 188 and a C#0 string unknown gauge.
A .188 Flatwound
That's stiffer than the wires that deliver electricity to my house
