WHY DOES THE BALL END SIDE OF THE LOW B STRING FOR MY BASS HAVE A TAPER?

Many 5-string bass players prefer a tapered end for the low B string. This allows the heavier gauge low B string to be positioned on the bridge more evenly with the other 4 strings. The taper can also improve the clarity of the fundamental tone, which improves intonation.
