it improved my tone completely. i get a nice warm tone with the g string. slapping sounds amazing. i thought i had to get another amp because i hated my tone until i got the kahler. i had to get another B string cuz when i divebombed it kept on falling off the roller. whats it called when the string is skinnier in the start of it than the rest?

Cool, man! Yeah those bridges are tone city.

I think you're talking about a tapered B string. I think Warwick makes those...or something. Alembic used to make something similar to that as well. Maybe they still do.

Get yourself a long trem arm from fretsonthenet.com and you're set!

You're correct, Martin. The term is tapered.

And BBMN, I second Martin's recommendation to get yourself a longer arm. It'll make tremming that much easier, and it will also save your forearm.

Woohoo! 100 points for the correct answer!!! Razz

After getting a vintage arm, I literally can not go back to the modern arm, even with it bent, it's just too stiff.

So BBMN, the tapered B string works alright when divebombing?

I'm curious to get a bass without a Kahler bridge that's the same as one with and A/B them. Oh! Looks like I need another Blitz now! No avoiding it. Twisted Evil Laughing

Huh nice. How does it sound and feel in comparison to a non-tapered B?

Huh. Cool! I might want to give one of those a try for that factor. It's probably how I play and how I have everything set up, but I tend to have a bit of trouble getting a B string to have the volume I want from it. I kinda want to try one of those.

But I really don't play anything with a low B that often...kinda wish I did, but maah.

Oh yeah, man...they're the best you can get right now, I think. I'd still like a longer arm, but hey...some day. Cool I have to get the tuning stability worked out on my Hamer first.
