D'Sddario EXPPBB170S
These strings fit perfectly on my Ohana OBU-22 Ukulele Bass. This bass has a scale of 24.5" and is very similar to the Michael Kelly Sojourn 4 Travel Acoustic Bass. The Sojourn also has a 24.5" scale.
These strings sound good acoustically and excellent when the bass is plugged in. I like these very much, and prefer coated bronze strings.
In the acoustic mode, the E is lower in volume than the other 3 strings, but I expected to find some compromise on a 24.5" scale. Also acoustically, if you try to use Bronze strings any longer than this, the E will loose most of the fundamental, no surprise. However, it will put out so much harmonic content, it will sound like the E is playing through a chorus, even though not plugged in! Not a good balance.
If you have a 24.5' scale bass, this is the way to go.
I'll update if I find any other option.

Short scale strings that are too short
According to D'Addario customer service product specialist, sometimes a bass may have a tailpiece that sits far back from the saddles. Such circumstances need to be factored into the overall string length needed for certain basses. This may account for different player's experiences with the same set of strings ? their basses are different in their construction. However, if a customer thinks the strings are not as described, please contact JustStrings.com customer service.

Too short
These strings will NOT fit a short scale Bass. The specs say "fits up to a 32 inch scale Bass", haha that's a laugh. The playable part of string won't make it over the nut on a 30" Acoustic. These strings are for a U Bass, Ukulele!! I have a set of Rotosound & LaBella shorts. These are 4" shorter. What in the World is going on here??
