About Bass Guitar Strings

The Bass Guitar Strings that you choose are an often overlooked and underappreciated part of tweaking your tone. Each players style, and preference will determine what kind of string is best for them, however different scale lengths and guitars in general will also be an important factor in determining the best string for the job.

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 bass guitars in every store with options including phosphor bronze, nickel plated steel and coated strings.

Why Should I Change My Bass Guitar Strings?

  • Optimise your playing
  • Range of gauges and brands
  • Different materials and styles

Frequently Asked Questions about Bass Guitar Strings

Question: How often should I change bass strings?
You should change bass strings as often as is practical, this will generally depend on how often you play, how exposed the strings are during storage and a number of other factors. Professional musicians will have a fresh set of strings for every show, but most musicians will get away with changing every month or so.
Question: How do I know what bass strings to buy?
You should buy strings based on what type of bass guitar you own, and you should also factor the basses scale length into your decision making. Heavier gauge strings will have a more rounded bottom-end, but you'll likely need more finger strength.
Question: What is the standard gauge for bass strings?
This can depend on many factors such as scale length but the standard gauge for most basses is 45-100.
Question: What are some of the best bass guitar strings?
The best bass guitar strings will often be determined by the type of bass and what your style is, however some of the most popular strings are Ernie Ball Slinky's and Rotosound Bass Strings.
Question: What are the 4 strings on a bass guitar?
The standard tuning for bass guitars is E, A, D and G, which you may have noticed is the same as the four lowest strings on a regular guitar, however the bass is one octave lower.
