I keep reading threads about how floppy one B string is on one 34" bass, and how "pretty good" another B string is on another 34" bass, etc. So what is it that makes one floppy and another not-so-floppy....they are both 34" scale basses, right? The string length from nut to bridge should be 34" (thereabout, not taking intonation adjustment into consideration). The B on bass-A should be as floppy or as "pretty good" as on bass-B. Could it be as simple as changing from a .125 B to a .130 to end the floppiness? A thicker string will need to be wound tighter, in-turn be no-so-floppy. (This is meant to kind of be a tongue-in-cheek post....not really a serious question) I use a .130 B on 34" Basses and never see the B as "floppy". I feel that a 34" B has a nicer growl to it than a 35".
