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 our 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.

The Best Strings Ever!

Comments about Elixir Nickel-Plated Steel 5th Bass String with NANOWEB Coating, Extra Long Scale, Taperwound Light (.130):

Great string with a broken in tone that will last months.
I have a condition similar to Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. My PH is really high wich makes my sweat very corrosive. I have tried all the strings on the market and Elixir strings are the only ones that keep their sweet tone. I use them exclusively on all 4 of my basses. They have a silky smooth feeling that you might have to get used to, but the tone lasts several months instead of several hours like the other brands. Do yourself a favor and try these out.
Best on the market!
With all the other "coated" string out there they should come down in price to be a little more competative.
