I just bought a new set of strings in a local music store. But i don't understand why they are calles Voodoo strings. I mean, that type of basses are no longesr in production. Does anyone know the answer? Or is it because Mr Dingwall was to enthousiastic of his creation by thinking he would beat Fender and after that he ordered 5000 string sets^^ What i do like is that on the back of the package is written: "Bot for use on ordinary basses" ^^ Greetings, from Holland, Erwin

Minor things like string packaging and not so minor things like website updates take a back seat.

Are the Voodoo strings flatwound? Does the B fit a 37" scale?

There are currently no flatwound Dingwall brand strings. Dingwall strings are stainless steel and come in one gauge specifically designed for these basses (37" - 34" for 5-string). If I am not mistaken, the SuperJs get some GHS strings.

I put a set of Voodoo Bass Strings yesterday and didn't like them. I felt them very "floppy", if I could compare them to the regular Dingwall strings. It's very sad, because in Brazil we don't have much string options (not to mention that we really DON'T FIND Dingwall strings to buy here). So I had to test these Voodoo Bass Strings on my AB1.

I'm not sure on age as they had been using that design on the package for some time. They now make Nickel and Stainless Steel. Current packaging can be seen here: [url:1023w0h5]https://www.dingwallguitars.com/purchase/shop/category/strings/[/url:1023w0h5] Not sure on your tension issue - never had an issue.
