If you’re looking for the tastiest set of bass strings ever, then buddy have Stringjoy got a treat for you. You better hop in ‘cause you’re going straight to flavour town with this Light set.
They’re the missing ingredient to your tone-sandwich and once you get a taste of these badboys, it’ll make you realize just how bland all those other strings are out there.
But don’t actually taste them, that would be weird.
Stringjoy bass guitar strings are roundwound from American nickel alloy windings and round steel core wire. They have a full, resonant low end and a medium top end—not too bright, not too mellow — giving these strings a balanced sonic profile with optimum output.
The tapers on Stringjoy bass strings are halfwound to better enable the string to wind around the tuning peg and hold tune once it’s there. The process is very similar to how “silked” end strings are made, but they leave off the silk.
Unless otherwise noted, Stringjoy bass strings have a 38″ winding length, ideal for both 34″ and 35″ scale basses.
Gauges: .045 – .060 – .080 – .100
To put it simply, fresh bass strings, made with quality materials and genuine care just sound and play better.
Stringjoy bass strings are made by a small team in the USA, out of all American materials: top quality nickel alloy, hand wound around a high carbon round-core steel wire.
The combination of better materials and more careful craftsmanship creates a more natural-sounding, longer lasting string, without the tone-deadening effects of string coatings.
Stringjoy are known for our quality control. Their strings are wound in small batches, and they use real human beings at every step of the process: the winding, the coiling, the packing, you name it.
Every string is inspected individually before it goes into your set. If anything is wrong with a string, from the way it’s secured around the ball end, through the entire winding, it doesn’t make the cut.
What does a higher quality set of bass strings mean for you?
Better tuning stability for the life of the string
Longer string life and less breakage, when cared for properly
Smoother, more balanced playability across the neck of the bass
One last note: Our bass strings have a unique winding style at the tail end (the one that goes around the tuning peg). We use the same winding style as is featured on “silked” strings, but we leave off the silk for maximum cohesion, which leads to better tuning stability. They rule.
