    I am having a heard time finding very many sets of strings for a 35" scale for a 6 string bass. Any recomendations.

    D'Addario makes these strings. Just make sure you get the Super Long sets, which fits up to 36" scale length. Also Ken Smith makes long strings that have up to 38" windings. I recommend getting strings at:


    You can order sets, or individual strings...

    I always order my strings from Just Strings I just did not know if for a 35" scale on the DR's if they would have to be longer than their normal set. FWIW the basses tuners are 3 on each side

    Look for/ask for this spec particularly - THSL is spot on here.

    My bass arrived today and I measured the ball to the tuner on the longest string and its 42 3/4 inches. The ESP comes with SIT strings and I only played it about 5 minutes so far I think the bass plays good but I think the strings are rough. I usually use Fat Beams. I have Sadowsky flats on my 5 string and my New ATK 300 came with Elixers. I think for rounds I really like the Fat Beams and Elixers a lot more than the SIT's.
