    I know that these "TI Flats v." have been done too many times before, but I'm not sure which of these I should buy for my new bass.

    I just got a really amazing Fender AVRI '58 P-Bass yesterday, and I want to tune it BEAD, but I don't want to make any permanent changes to the bridge (I know some work is going to need to be done on the nut). I hate the tension and feel of the TI Flats, but I absolutely love the sound. I've never tried Sadowsky or Dr Flats, but I'm a fan of everything DR, and I like that the Sadowsky B is tapered at the bridge. Since these strings might be on my bass for over a year, I want to make the right choice.

    I guess to state it simply, will the B string on the DR or TI flats fit my bass without modification to the bridge? Or should I go with the Sadowskys?

    LaBella Deep Talkin 45 to 105,s are a top choice.
