Smaller ball ends?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by BackToTheGroove, Nov 4, 2012.

  1. I have a Hagstrom Beluga FII. What a great bass.
    Its optional string through or bridge.

    Thing is the ferrules are smaller than standard it seems, so does anyone know of strings with small balls? er.. I mean smaller ball ends? Thanks.

    (or I'll drill out and replace with standard size)

    Never heard of such and would not want myself. Id keep it top load rather then thru body. With any qaulity high mass bridges Ive had that had option for string thru body. Ive noticed no change in sound and only a feel like of maybe a little bit tighter tension.
