This Light Top Heavy Bottom set is the best of both worlds when it comes to bass guitar strings. The top ones will give you snappiness reminiscent of Indiana Jones’ whip, while the low strings will give you enough power to name your amp “The Temple of Boom” thanks to the round core-wire that Stringjoy use in all of their bass strings.
If you’re looking for a set that even Jonesy would be proud of, then I think it’s safe to say you’ve stumbled upon the Holy Grail of bass guitar strings. Oh, and you don’t have to worry about any ghosts or lightning bolts emerging from the box. Stringjoy made sure to leave those out.
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 – .085 – .105
