See All Elixir .045 Gauge Electric Bass Guitar Strings
OVERVIEW

Funky fingers? No problem.

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.

I've strung my basses with Elixirs for the last 6 years and they're just the best. If you're looking for tone that lasts, then get these strings. Until they some other company comes out with better strings, I'll continue to use Elixirs.
Great tone that lasts for a long time!
Nanoweb coating does come undone as time goes by.
For some, they may be a little pricy but in the long run, it's worth it.

    I love these strings, but I usually don't buy them because they are so expensive. I had a coupon, so I bought another set. These are my favorite strings, but I usually buy Ernie Ball Slinkys due to price.

                  Ok, so I've been a big Dean Markely fan, using nothing but for over 25 years . Dean Markely are great strings but these Elixirs are heavenly! . Silky smooth for round wounds . great tone with none of that initial undesireable "twang" . "clank" that you get with a new set and need a couple days to get rid of . I've been using the DM Helix with are very flexible, and when I installed the Elixirs, they were stiff by comparison . to the point that I used needle nose pliars to do the initial wrap around the tuner peg . And they're a little stiff to play . however, I'm finding I like that . it is a plus doing fast pizzicato or stacatto lines . gives you a nice tight punch because they don't bend so easily . Also , I found light to be a little heavier than your "standard" light . could be the coating that gives an illusion . but "bottom line" (no pun intended) it's all good . Already switched over on 2 of my basses . I think I'm hooked and will be using Elixars on all my basses ! . . . good luck with yours .

                  I like that musicians friends also stand behind their products. All items are priced at a good value and the service & quality is second to none. I recommend them to all my friends.

                      Elixir strings may not offer the brightest tone if compared to new fresh off the box regular strings, but in my experience they can last for years, and the tone is very good and fresh. Last set I had lasted over 3 years and I only replaced them because I replaced the bridge on my P-bass to a BA bridge and the old strings wouldn't reach the tuners afterwards. They do flake after a few months if play with a pick a lot, but it doesn't affect the tone, so if you don't mind the look you can use the strings for years with excellent tone.

                        Fantastic tone and lifespan. They cost more, but they are much better quality and last forever while maintaining a great sound.
