OVERVIEW

Combat finger grunge!

Gauges: 40-65-75-95.

Elixirs are the first major innovation in strings in over forty years, and they deliver what they promise: great tone and long life no matter what you put them on or how often you play. Nanoweb coating permits strings with the feel, bright tone, and punch of traditional strings.

Elixir Super Light Bass Strings are covered with an ultra-thin, space-age polymer tube that contacts the string on the tops of the windings only. This leaves the all-important winding-to-winding-to-core space free from the fear of the enemies of tone!

Most players report that Elixir Strings keep sounding great 3 to five times longer than ordinary strings.

FEATURES
  • Gauges: 40-65-75-95
  • Electric bass guitar strings constructed with nickel-plated steel wrap wire
  • Played for a rich, rounded tone with incredible clarity and a heavy mid-range presence
  • Ultra-thin NANOWEB Coating, redesigned specifically for bass guitars, provides a smooth, natural feel that also enhances grip
  • Patented coating technology protects against common corrosion, extending tone life longer than any other brand’s coated or uncoated strings (Elixir Strings player survey)
  • Coating also reduces finger squeak

            I think these could be the best strings I've played. Best of the Elixers too. If your looking for bright, easy playing, with a long lasting tone these are the strings. I'm currently playing in an original blues oriented funk/rock band. Slapping took a little adjustment with these due to the lighter touch, but the sound is great.

            My Ibanez originally came with medium Elixers. I've tried other brands and for me nothing could compare. I even pulled one set off after two days because I couldn't stand the difference.

              I have used Elixirs for years on both guitars and bass and love them. Tone stays for a long time,longer than other coated strings (e,g, the DRs I have used) and they are very durable for finger-style bass players like me. They are quite soft to the touch and easy to play fast. No squeaks is a plus, too. I am a fan and think they are good value for money.

              I play in a Rush Tribute Band usinga Geddy Lee fender Jazz. I have found these strings easy to play, have no squeak, reduce bass click and sound full and bright. They make it easier to play Geedy's style and catch all the notes easier. Worth the money!

              Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 4-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Super Light (.040-.095):

              I signed up to be a participant in the field trial of these new strings and forgot about it. Well, yesterday I got the package in the mail and found out I was selected. I am so glad I did. I would never had bought these strings to try them. The price tag is very steep, but once I played on them it showed it was justified. The strings themselves are very smooth and soft, giving an almost flatwound feel in my opinion. They have a bright sound, but it's not obnoxious and allow for some really nice low tones. They breathed new life in a bass I thought might be dead.
