    Hello! I've checked out a lot of sites, but I wasn't able to find what I was looking for. What brand make 30" and 32" strings? What are the names of these short models?
    I need your help... I've always used long scale strings on my basses!

    Many makers offer shorter strings, though typically not in all string styles.

    GHS, Rotosound, LaBella, Fender and D'Addario offer both 32" and 30".

    Danelectro and Alembic offer 30" sets.

    Thomastik-Infeld offers 32" sets.
  3. D'Addario's EXL-170S = Short scale medium gauge roundwound.

    D'Addario's EXL-170M = Medium scale medium gauge roundwound.

    Both of these are excellent short and medium SCALE strings. There are others out there, but these are the best buy going.
