    I've been trying to "clean up" the low B on my USA G&L L2500 for over a year now. Good sustain and huge tone, even good in the mix, but just didn't have the same clarity my other strings had.

    Tried DR lo-riders and Sunbeams. Tried TI Power Bass strings.

    Sadowsky Blue Labels with the tapered .130 solved my issue immediately.

    Just FYI........that tapered B works great.
  2. Agreed - it is one of the better Low-B strings.
  3. I have Sadowsky blue nickels 40-125T on my L2500 and sound great.

    But I´m so tempted to try the Fodera nikels 40-120
    I don´t know how would it sound with the normal 120 b string
  4. IMO, the taper has little to do with what you are hearing. The much bigger dose of upper mids and somewhat tighter feel of the Sadowsky Blue's can do wonders though!
