    it's been a while since i've had a 5 stringbass, so im just looking for some strings that are going to give me a really fat punchy sound, so what do you suggest? keep in mind they have to be tapered cause most strings wont fit the damn groove on warwicks,

    thanks.
     
  2. You can file your bridge to fit larger diameter strings, or have a guitar tech do it. I did mine so I have a large array of strings I can use now.
    OR you can give a little squeeze with some pliars on the winding of the string till it fits in there.
    Then I would reccomend Some DR Lo-Riders. I love the sound of them on my warwicks.

    BUT if you only want tapered....
    Some D'addario like the 1/2 rounds have a tapered B. Maybe the XL's, but I'm not possitive.
    I know Sadowsky strings have a tapered B as well.
    Or of course the Warwick black labels that came on your bass if you bought it new.
