    I have a bass with a 35" scale that strings through the body. Who makes strings that are long enough for this instrument? I know D'Addario does.

    DR, Ken Smith, TI, and D'Addario come to mind.

    La Bella has extra longs. Not sure how long though.

    Well, uh, it turns out the scale on my bass is actually 34". The manual that came with it is for a different model.

    So is 34" strung through the body long or extra long?
