OVERVIEW

Ultrathin coating.

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.

    FINE ADDITION TO MY BLACK NYLON SET

    Pros

    • Gives A Nice Clear Tone

    Cons

    • Best When Fully Broken In

    Best Uses

    • Replacing Black Nylon 5th

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

    I got tired of the clanking sound of metal strings on my Warwick 5 string bass guitar with frets. The clanking of the strings on the frets drove me to get an Ibanez fretless bass. I bought black nylon strings for the Warwick to get a more natural upright bass sound and it worked. However the 5th string from the nylon set was a bit muddy sounding and not distinct enough. As an experiment I replaced the 5th string with this Elixir 5th bass guitar string and solved the problem. It's best to let the string break in before passing full judgment on the sound. Black nylon bass strings are practically useless for slap bass playing. It's nice to have at least one string that I can use for slap bass playing. I'm very satisfied with this product. It really solved my 'muddy sounding' 5th black nylon string bass problem. Takes a little getting used to the way it looks compared to the other 4 black nylon strings.
