    I have an Elrick NJS 5 (35" scale) that would probably do a lot better with tapered B, E, and A strings. SS, nickel....I really don't care. I know Status distributes string sets matching this description but I was hoping to find something readily available.

    Dean Markley SR2000s are all tapered, except for the G.

    La Bella Hard Rockin Steels have tapered B and E (but not A).

    I've had good luck with the Carvin's, both Nickel and Stainless (I don't know who really makes them). All except the G tapered and very reasonably priced.
