Ok, I know there are tons of threads on this subject and I'm not trying to raise a dead subject here, but I'm wondering what exactly causes a B string to be tighter on some basses. I know some say it's scale length and others would argue that it's construction and even others argue about strings. I tend to side with the construction being the biggest factor, but what about the construction makes it tighter? What specific aspect of the construction process makes a better, tighter B string? I figured I'd put this in the Luthier's Corner and get some actual builder's opinions on this, since they would know the answer more so than just a lowly player such as myself.
