This is a set of Rotosound 4-String Solo Bass stainless steel pressure wound bass strings, 45-105, Long Scale
Solo Bass Strings are made by rolling the wire as the string is being made. The original pressure wound stainless steel bass string designed in the mid-1970s. Similar to regular stainless steel strings but with a smoother feel.
This string has three advantages over the conventional roundwound: a smooth feel, ideal for fretless bass and studio work; no finger noise/reduced fret wear, and it retains the brightness of the roundwound string - due to rolling, mass is retained and therefore its brightness.
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.
