    Hey, I am interesting in buying a Marcus Miller 5 String jazz, but I was just wondering about how the B string is. Also, if it is floppy can't that just be corrected with certain strings?
    And how would the B on this bass compare to something in a similar pricerange such as Carvin, G&L or maybe even Lakland?

    Try Sadowsky Stainless. In fact, try the whole set on your bass, I think you'll find them amazing for slap, and the B is the best I've used.

    Thanks for the advice, I will give them a try, however I was more wondering about the sound/playability of the Marcus Miller's B string, as I do not own one or have played one yet.

    Whups, sorry :bassist: I was a bit groggy when I wrote that.

    If you thought the B string was reasonable in the shop, that Sad .130 would probably whip it right into shape. It works really well on a 34" scale, a big improvement over the stock strings I'm sure.
