Elites on a 35"

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by i_got_a_mohawk, Jun 5, 2005.

  1. Would a 6 string set of Elites fit on my BTB ( 35" scale ) ?

    Im not sure, and have been holding off getting a new set because of this

    If not, can anyone recommend a fairly bright punchy set of nickle strings (or stainless steel, but i prefer the feel of nickle)

    I think its got elixers on it, but i really am not too sure, and dont plan on buying a set of them to replace it, bit too pricey for me atm (saving for aerodyne jazz :bassist: )

    Cheers guys

    Yes they would fit, i think. Standard strings are usually scaled at 40" or something. If u usually cut down ur strings before you put them on, then dont.

    You can buy long scale strings if it really worries you.
