I have been searching, but not finding what I need. I know that you shouldn't use long scale (34") strings on short scale (30") basses, but I'm wondering if it is possible to use 34" scale strings on a 32" scale instrument. The choice of medium gauge strings is even less than those for short scale. And please don't post the link to bass strings online. I've seen it in nearly every thread I've researched. I know the difference in scale lengths, and understand the theory behind the different strings offered for the different scale. I'm just looking for an answer from practical experience of the players here regarding whether the 2" difference between a 34 and a 32 inch scale length strings is enough to preclude their use. Specifically, the taper on the end of the string that wraps around the tuner, and whether using a 34" long scale string on a 32" medium scale bass will result in cutting off the string short of that taper.
