    I assume these can be cut down for 34 inch scale with no problem? They seem to have the tensions I am looking for.

    Anyone think there would be an issue putting these BEAD on a standard style jazz bridge?
     
  2. Keep in mind the tension numbers on the D'A site for "super long" sets are based on the 35" scale. Once you put them on a 34" scale bass, the tension will be the same as the "long" set on a 34" scale.

    and the super long low B string might be too long for 34" bass, unless it's strung thru body, which might not be settle just by cutting the excess length. Cause when the big untapered part goes round the tuning post, it might be damaged.
