    A set of steel strings with a tapercore E .110, A .85, D .65, and a G.45. Any ideas on who makes a set like that?

    Some manufacturers offer custom sets where you can choose from all gauges. Check out German manufacturer Pyramid http://www.pyramidstrings.com/default.htm - unfortunately you only see the Pyramid gold strings there...but they offer regular bass strings (Pyrasound) in stainless steel or nickel in gauges from .020 to .140 and can can combine them as you like...

    I think Stainless Steel Elites have a tapered 110" E. You'll need to buy seperate strings as they don't do those guages as a standard set.

    Whereabouts are you based? I know of a really good company here in England that make up custom sets. They would happily do you a set with a tapered E. In fact you could even go into detail about the type of tpaer. How's that for service?
