Why does the ball end side of the low B string for my bass have a taper?

Many 5-string bass players prefer a tapered end for the low B string. This allows the heavier gauge low B string to be positioned on the bridge more evenly with the other 4 strings. The taper can also improve the clarity of the fundamental tone, which improves intonation.

How can I extend the life of my strings?

There are many factors that can affect the lifespan of your strings. Here are some tips to help extend the life of your strings:

1. Wipe down your strings after each use.

2. Try D'Addario X-Series strings! Our two X Series options each use a distinct method to extend lifespan, while preserving the tone and feel of uncoated strings.

XT combines high carbon steel cores with an advanced corrosion resistance treatment added over the string to enhance string longevity. XS makes use of a special film and innovative application process, allowing the string to last longer than any string we've produced before.

3. Try these maintenance and care products to prolong string life and performance.
