About Bass Guitar Strings

Bass guitar strings tend to come in a few main gauges, referred to as 40s, 45s and 50s after the lightest string in the pack. Most players will settle on the gauge they prefer and stick to it but different bass guitars and different scale lengths may require a little experimentation with string gauge.

We carry all major bass string gauges by brands including Rotosound, Ernie Ball, Dunlop and D'Addario. Flatwound strings are available for those who play fretless bass or just want that smooth, tight feel. We also keep string packs for 5 and 6 string basses in every store.

Frequently Asked Questions about Bass Guitar Strings

The best set of bass strings for playing slap and pop techniques is any fresh, new set of roundwound strings in a light gauge. All manufacturers of bass strings can help you out here so perhaps try a different set each time you buy new strings to get a flavour for all the different subtleties.
Flatwound strings are specially made to be ultra smooth to the touch with no exposed coils. The sound is also resultingly smooth and lots of Jazz, fusion and in particular fretless players love them.
This can depend on many factors such as scale length but the standard gauge for most basses is 45-100.
