OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

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 bought these strings 2 years ago because I was told these are the best for tone and brightness, not to mention the amazing life these have. I have not changed them yet, it has been 2 years and they still play very very good. It took over a year for them to even lose any tone whatsoever, and even today they sound better than most strings brand new! they still have sustain and everything. this is the best investment a bass player can make. most strings get old and feel rubbery after only a month or two, these strings retain their new feel for two years. these are definately the best strings ever. so what if they cost a little more than the rest, look how long they last, you actually save a whole lot of money on these strings. no matter what bass I play on, I make sure they have elixir strings on them. once you play these strings, you realize how bad the rest of the strings are.

Get these every year, my son loves them. Usually come in a box, but came in an envelope this year and the box with the strings was totally squished.

Truly Converted

By Groove - Bassist for The ImanI Experience

from Grand Junction,CO

Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

I have been writing/playing/performing for 25 years, I was put on to these strings just over 3 years ago and will not string my basses with anything else. Superb product, shame they weren't around 25 years ago. Incredible sustain with amazing tone, has certainly enriched my playing experience. I recommend this product to any and all bass players. Dynamite.

best strings ever

By Elisha

Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

Elixir strings have never failed me. I use them all the time, and won't settle for less. The sound is warm and punchy, not twangy or tinny. The coating makes slides easier and better sounding. You won't regret buying them because they last a really long time.

Amazing, unless...

By Angel4Lost

from Someplace like Home, ND

Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

you manage to shred the nanowebbing. I bought a schecter five-string bass over a year ago, and it came with these strings on it. They're amazing and until about a week ago still looked and felt brand new. When I play, I usually use a pick, and that's how I tore up then nanowebing on the B and E strings. Still, they play like new, they're just a little fuzzy lookin! hahaha! I'm going to replace them though, so that I don't have to worry about having rusty, grimey strings. I highly recommend elixer strings, and myself will probably never use any other brand.

The Elixir PH Sweat Shield

By Jayof9

from Saint Louis, MO

See all my reviews

Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

Okay, These strings are expensive. That's the bad. The reality is that if you have Bad PH sweat that kills your strings before they stretch out, this is a gift from God. Some players complain about losing their tone after 2 weeks with regular strings, but I couldn't play more than 45 minutes before the "dulling" effect would kick in. This was documented in the studio where you could hear the difference on punch ins. Enter Elixir Bass Strings (medium)This was crazy! I actually go 2 or 3 months with bright broken in Awesome Tone! Good tone means better practice so my investment really pays off.

This strings are nice

By DarkBassistXIII

Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

I bought these strings two years ago...I still haven't changed them. I haven't had to change them. The nanoweb coating only started to fray after a year of use. I play very fast and aggressively and these strings haven't broken on me yet(I used to have a 5-string bass and I broke the heaviest string) or lost tone. I used to play in drop A, now drop C and these heavy strings are perfect for low tunings. The biggest problem with these strings are the price. Forty dollars for strings might seem like a little much but after having these for so long, it seems like they've been worth it.

      Having used cheap strings until I purchased these the change is immediately noticeable. They tuned right up with minimal stretching to seat properly. They stay in tune the whole practice session. Flat out the best I have used so far.

      I put these strings on my bass about 3 months ago, and from day one they still have the same amazing tone. They have great highs, mids, and lows. I cannot see myself playing with anyother brand of strings. Elixirs are a must for all serious bass players.

      Thoughts 2.5 years later

      Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

      All right, 2.5 years of the set of heavies on my practice beater mostly daily play of 1-2 hours and here's the results. Fuzzy strings were a reality after about 9 months of picking and slapping, interestingly more on the E 1-7 than the area of picking on all strings. (I do slide a lot for what that's worth). Sound is still relatively good but I knocked the quality down because for the first time in 25 years of playing, I snapped a D. Not the G, not an unwound E, the freaking D?!Fairly good deal otherwise and if I tire of the flatwounds on my gigging rig, I will probably move to these.

      Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

      I own a Schecter Studio 5 and I use these on my bass. It is the best strings I have found yet. They're great for Warm Finger Playing or High End Slapping. Whatever your style, these are good for you.

      SEXT STRINGS, BUT...

      Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

      These strings are THE BUSINESS...I had a set of Ernie Ball Power Slinkeys on my Ibanez, and they died on me after about 3 months (I'm cheap) so I went to my local GC and bought me these...AMAZING, to say the least. Best Slap/Pop tone I've ever heard, and the lows-highs are awesome. The only cautionary I want to give to other people considering these strings is that, thse strings are for fingers ONLY..A pick easily tears up the nanowebbing and ruins the strings. Other than that, Awesome strings, totally worth the 40 bucks.

      Elixir heavy bass strings are the best. Get you some. The heavies are unbeatable.

      Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

      a freaking 10
      I play in a small band that rocks hard. We practice three times a week doing at least 2 run throughs of 12 song sets each practice, not to mention dialing in new songs and song writing sessions. My first set of these lasted 4 months and I finally wore thru the coating on a few frets, but the strings still sounded great. There is no comparison to elixirs.
      Outstanding sound, sustain, and brightness that last and last

      Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Medium (.050-.105):

      My band plays in drop B so having a heavy gauge string that wouldn't go out of tuning all the time was a must. Just purchased the Dean Custom Zone Nuclear Green guitar merely for looks and because it got good reviews. Probably should've gotten a 5 string if I were smart but the Dean was too ridiculously colored for me to pass up. These strings get the job done! They tuned to drop B beautifully and stayed there. They don't play like rubber bands and sound great! Definitely get these despite the price!!! They'll last!
