    Also, I'm looking for some half round/compressors for a 35" scale 5-string (low B). The only ones I've been able to find to accomodate 5-string are Smith's. Anyone know any others?

    Status. I tried a set of their flat wounds on a 35" Modulus, fit just fine. All their strings have the same length, so their half rounds ought to work for you.


    FYI - shipping only took a week to Texas, so don't worry about how long it's gonna take to "cross the pond".....

    The flatwounds I tried were very good quality, but I decided I like rounds better for that bass.

    I've ordered from http://www.bassguitarstrings.us several times. Fast, and even added some strings to their catalog that I requested, and had them to me across the country in two days.

    I've liked the Compressors taper-core B in 36.5 and 38 speaking length, and the GHS Pressurewound B which has 38" of speaking length. I didn't care for the standard-core Compressor B string.

    I'd use the GHS Pressurewound if the set is heavy and the KS Compressor taper-core if it's a lighter set.

    I get mine from them, and have gotten good service, and good advice from them. Quick shipping, fair price.
