Fender Electric Bass Guitar Nickelplated Steel Taperwound Long Scale 34 , .045 - .130, 8250-5-OEM-M2Gerry WoodNovember 13, 2010Have to add my vote of disappointment to Bruce's, as it looks like Fender has changed suppliers for their strings. I do not like these as well as the previous sets. Will be looking for a new brand.

"Looking for something a little different? Wound on a round core, these strings have a tapered winding on the E and B strings for easy intonation and a more balanced tone. The 8250 series is designed to fit Fender's strings-through-the body basses, while the 8255 series is designed for any long scale bass that is strung through the bridge. For great balance and tone, try the 8250's or 8255's and hear the difference!"

 

"Original equipment on Fender's new American Standard and Deluxe series of basses, the tapered winding on these sets allows more vibration to translate directly to the bridge, enhancing sustain and tone. While also improving intonation, the string may be set closer to the pickups resulting in a hotter signal. Our nickel-plated steel formula (same as our Super bass strings) assures the highest quality sound from your instrument. Offered in 4 or 5 string versions."
