Hi everyone, I'm a bit confused as to what strings would be appropriate for a Hofner Ignition Violin Bass, length/scale wise. I know that it's a short scale bass, and I ordered a set of La Bella Deep Talkin' "Beatle Bass" flats, but as soon as I had them on my bass the E string snapped at the silk near the nut. I have no clue why. Are they the wrong length? Defective? Should I just get regular length flats for it? I've seen some folks online say that short scale strings don't work on Hofner's, that you need medium scale strings because of the length of the bridge and body, but the La Bella's say they'll work for Beatle style basses. What to do?
