I'm talking full wrap strings. I'm proud to say I finally found a nice Warwick to call my own and I want to get 'er all set up and ready with a new set of roundwounds in .045 - .065 - .080 - .100 - .120 gauge. I prefer this gauge and I want to stick to a well known easily obtainable brand like D'Addario...and they don't do tapercore (I think).

Does the bridge require a tapercore B in all cases or can a .120 fit in the saddle ok?

(sadly I won't have the bass until I pay the balance owing :p)

Mid nineties bridges are known to be problematic sometimes. Modern ones are fine with the gauges you described.

I have never had an issue with any b string fitting into my wick bridges. I use long nose pliers and hold the end of the string into the slot and tune up. I just brute foece them in and have never had any issues.
