    I spoke recently with Bob at La Bella, who said that they make untapered Deep Talking flatwound B strings. I've been to several shops in the L.A. area, including the Amp Shop, and even talked to Leo at BigCityStrings, but no luck finding one. Anyone know where to get a set with (or individual) untapered Deep Talking flatwound B strings? TIA

    I just bought a set of 6 string from juststrings.com and I don't remember the B string being tapered.

    You don't happen to have the part number for that 6 string set, do you? I was originally on juststrings.com, but they don't have a 6 string flatwound set listed (or at least one that stood out from the dozens of others listed!) I think I'll give them a call before they close for the day....
