    It depends on the strings. The only D'Addarios that will work thru body on my Lakland 55-02 are special order Superlongs. On the other hand, all DR strings I've tried are long enough.

    Yeah, the stated above D'Addarios work.
  4. +1 on DR's... they work great with the thru body basses I've tried them with... Celinder 35" 5 and Lakland 35" 5 string. They are GREAT strings also... long lasting. Lakland strings work also.... they are designed to work with the 55-94 type through body 35" scale bass. I find the Lakeland SS kind of 'clanky' sounding.. something going on in the upper mids... but the Nickels sound great to me.
