35 - 36+ inch: Extra Long Scale

Extra Long Scale Strings will have at least a 38" winding length up to a 40" or greater 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 35 inches and 36 inches or more depending on the bass.

Extra Long Scale instruments can be tricky to find strings for especially since the total string winding length required will vary depending 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 38" and 40" or more you are indeed looking for "Extra Long Scale Bass Strings."  Please contact us with any questions on finding the best strings for your instrument.
