See All Elixir .045 Gauge Electric Bass Guitar Strings
OVERVIEW

Get a grip on gunk!

Jam on and on (and on) with the same premium electric bass guitar strings that experienced players worldwide trust to keep their incredible tone longer than any other string available. 

Specially developed based on in-depth feedback from more than a thousand bass players just like you, Elixir Strings' tailor-made selection of bass strings proudly includes nickel-plated and stainless steel construction options, four-, five- and six-string sets, long and extra-long scales, and virtually every gauge range you could possibly need. All with their innovative string coating technology. And unlike other string brands, Elixir Strings coats the whole string. This protects not only the outer string surface but also the gaps between the windings where common tone-deadening gunk typically builds up in other brands’ coated and uncoated guitar strings.

Who wouldn’t love more quality playing time between the hassle and cost of string changes?

Premium by design, these electric bass guitar strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire boast a rich, rounded tone with incredible clarity and a heavy mid-range presence. Meanwhile, the ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating, redesigned specifically for bass guitars, allows a smooth, natural feel that also enhances grip and reduces finger squeak.

For a brighter bass tone, try Elixir Strings' Stainless Steel Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating.  

Of course, the kind of string you play is all a matter of personal preference. Not sure what tone is right for you? Try them out for yourself, and find your new favorite string from Elixir Strings.

          Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Light (.045-.100):

          I've always used mainly RotoSound, or sometimes GHS Bass Boomers. The few exceptions turned out to not be worth it. I was for a long time reluctant to try Elixir strings, even in spite of the great reviews I kept reading. Catching them at a discounted price, I decided to give them a try. I fully expected that 'coated' strings would lack the brightness and expressiveness I prefer. Not only was I surprised, but I was completely blown away! These strings sound simply amazing! It does take a bit longer for them to hold their initial tuning compared to RotoSound of Bass Boomers, but not only is the difference not deal-breaking, but it's well worth the wait. I can say honestly that I don't want to use any other strings after trying Elixir. They are my new string-of-choice.
          I've had them on for less than a week, so I can't speak yet to their durability or how long they will hold their tuning or sound like they do now, but I'm still thoroughly impressed. Highly recommended!

            I have the worst skin chemistry in the known world and would go through standard strings once every 3-4 weeks of practice and playing out. In reality, most strings start going dead after 1 week and I prefer live piano like tones on my basses. These strings last me up to a year if I wipe them down and really do not seem to lose too much tone for at least 3-4 months. I have never had a Elixir bass string break so I know they are strong. These are the best for me and there is no second place.

                I have used these strings for the past twenty years and have yet to be let down. The intonation is crisp, clear, and good quality overall.

                  Since the days of the Flatwound strings I used on both bass and Strat, these come close in feel to those, but have a more superior tone consistency than those strings from my era.
