    Thought I'd try to tap into some experience -
    I just got a Kawai F2B - Anyone have suggestions or success with some medium scale strings (32"). I've always liked nickel wrapped steel but usually play a passive jazz. I'd like something to help get the lowest action possible.
    Appreciate it

    Are you sure about the scale length? I have a coulpe of those basses and always use 34" long scale strings, it does have a neck thru bridge. I have had very good result with GHS bright flats, precisions or groundwounds. Also the Daddario half rounds but the best strings in my opinion are Thomastik Jazz flats. Jazz rounds might be a nice fit also, I haven't tried them yet but I plan to.
