Rotosound RS88S Tru Bass Black Nylon Flatwound Bass Guitar Strings 65-115 Short Scale
The 'Black Nylon Trubass' string was originally developed for the Burn's Black Bison Bass. Great Strings to simulate a double bass sound on an standard bass guitar.
These strings have made the most famous appearance on the top of the 'Apple' building while Paul McCartney was playing his Hofner.
You will note that the tension is low, making this string extremely comfortable to play and the heavier gauge is due to anything lighter and the strings themselves would start to flap.
**PLEASE NOTE** These are SHORT Scale Strings.
The string measures 32.5 inches from the ball end to the start of the silk covering. N.B. These strings have silk at both ends.

Made in the UK
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.
