Finally found the strings that work
May 31, 2017
Over the past 15 years I have tried many different brands of strings on my Carvin BB5. Most brands lost their tone in a very bad way over time. These have kept a pretty even tone even after over a year of play. Most importantly, the 'B' string rings true without all the ugly overtones I experienced on most others. I'm sure that the reason for this is the smaller diameter over the bridge.

Smith Burner Nickel Plated taper wound 5 String sets
July 27, 2011
Great replacement for the now defunct Fender 8250-5 OEM taper wound sets (no more taper wound B & E in the set) packages falsely advertised as Taper-wound and they are definitely not! Three calls to Fender customer Service and JS called the Distributor too and nobody would comment or seemed to want to correct the issue! Fender drools Smith Rules!
