Taperwounds - Industry Standards?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Solarmist, Mar 18, 2009.

  1. Hey Guys

    My new bass came with an Elixir .130 taperwound "B" string. I measured the distance from the end of the ball to the end of the taper (where the full .130 diameter starts), and got 2" even.
    I called SIT, and they said their .130 TW has an overall distance of 2 7/8" which is 7/8" longer than the Elixir.

    I'm going to use SIT Powerwounds, but if it's 7/8" longer - I'm going with a non-taper .130

    Isn't there an industry standard for this? :confused: Thanks Guys
