Q: Hi, I am interested getting a set of TI Jazz flats for my F bass BN5. The scale length on the bass is 34.5". Can you verify that the 34" long scale set will work? Just want to be sure I do not need the extra long 36" scale set.
I have these on a 35" scale bass and they feel great, but bordering on being a little too light. I am wondering if I should try them on a multi scale bass (35" to 32"). Would the higher (shorter) strings be floppier than I'm used to on the 35" bass or would the tension even out?
Q: Jason, I'm going to be ordering an EADGC set of T-I Jazz Flats for a 34-inch scale five-string bass that I own. Having researched this make and model of strings thoroughly, I've been told that the .70 gauge "A" string from the standard long scale set can be a little too loose and floppy, even compared with ordinary Thomastik Infeld Jazz Flats, but that substituting the .72 gauge "A" string from the extra-long scale set, which is more comparable in tension to the other strings from the standard long scale set, pretty much solves the problem.
Does this information correlate with your own knowledge of T-I Jazz Flats? Would you advise that I go ahead and order the .72 gauge "A" string?
Q: Will the .136 gauge B string fit into HIpshot A and B style bridge saddles as well as vintage style bridge saddles easily?
Q: Is the low B tapered? I find on my basses that if the low B isn't tapered, it looses its sustain.
