Taper Wound - Taper Before Bridge?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Solarmist, Feb 19, 2009.


  1. I just got a new 5er that came with Elixirs, and the "B" string is a taper wound that tapers to a smaller gauge BEFORE it crosses the bridge. Is there a reason for this sound-wise?
    Thanks Guys
     
  2. I have heard some say it adds to the sustain and punch of the string. In my experience, I have heard little difference.
