Long Scale Strings generally have a 36.5" to 37.5" winding length from Ball End to the end of the windings or silk.  The Scale Length of the instrument is measured from the Saddle to Nut and is between 34 inches and 35 inches.

Long Scale instruments can be tricky to find strings for, especially 35" scale instruments since total string winding length required will vary depending on the instruments construction.  Some "Long Scale" instruments actually require longer strings such as Extra Long Scale strings.  The actual strings required for your specific instrument will depend on the instruments construction. 


The most accurate way to determine the string length required is to measure from the Ball End of the string to just past the Nut.  Once this measurement is acquired you know the total winding length required for your instrument.  If this measurement is within 36.5" and 37.5" you are indeed looking for "Long Scale Bass Strings."  Please contact us with any questions on finding the best strings for your instrument.
