Are these strings the correct length for my bass?

We insist that players use the measurement of ball-end (anchor) to top nut of their current set of strings.  This measurement is more accurate than scale length as it takes into account through-body stringing, and more complex or alternative bridges.  In many cases the set of strings required will be longer than the bass’s stated scale length!  Use these references:

If ball-end-to-nut length is:

Up to 32” choose Short Scale

32”-34” choose Medium Scale

34”-36” choose Long Scale

36”-38” choose Extra/Super Long Scale

If you have a bass where you cannot see the ball-end i.e. a thru-body bass, you will have to measure your string once it has been removed. Before removing the string be sure to make a mark on the string with a permanent marker just behind the nut so you know where to measure to. Then once you’ve taken it off the bass, you can measure from the ball-end to the mark you made on the string.
