Problems with strings

    I just bought a 5 string set for my Warwick Streamer LX 5. The brand is DR Hi beams (.45 - .125). One problem , the low B doesn't fit on the back off my bridge (the point where you attach them, I don't know the English word for it).I don't know if this has been discussed before, I didn't check. I wonder if there are more complaints about strings that don't fit on a certain type of bass. Anyway, these don't fit on my Warwick and thus will probably not fit on any Warick 5 string with this type of bridge, so beware.

    I think Warwick's bridges require tapered strings. DR has them, they are called 'Long Necks'. These are also available in 45 - 125. Hope this helpes...
