I bought a 35"-scale bass because I wanted maximum snap, especially on the low B string, which is often floppy, giving a muddy tone. The point is to bring the string up to pitch over a stretch that is one inch longer than on a 34"-scale bass. The strings are more taut and have more snap. Heavy gauge strings accomplish the same goal and give more sustain because they provide more mass moving back a forth as the string vibrates. With these genuine 35"-scale, heavy-gauge Ernie Ball round-wounds, I get the full benefit of my 35"-scale bass. These strings run all the way past the nut even when mounted through the body. Another bass player noticed the difference right away. "Your bass has more growl now."
