It's common knowledge that your choice of string has a huge impact on the sound of your bass guitar. Different types of strings elicit different results, with certain ones being more ideal than others from one situation to the next. Roundwound strings are arguably the most common type of string found on bass guitars, and are a popular choice for performers of all different playing styles.

Roundwound strings are distinguished by their wire exterior that is wrapped around the string core, resulting in a slightly bumpy feel. These types of string are well known for their bright, punchy sound that you've no doubt heard throughout popular music over the years. While all roundwound strings share common characteristics, there is quite a variety to choose from, each with their own unique perks.

Simply put, the right strings for you will almost certainly come down to personal preference. If you're not sure where to begin your search, start with some of our best sellers such as the set of RS66LD Long Scale Swing 66 Bass Strings from Rotosound. These strings were a favorite of legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius. With their long scale and effortless playability, the RS66LD strings are ideal for your bass, whether you're jamming at home or playing up on the stage.

Another solid option available here is the set of EXL160TP Twin-Pack Bass Guitar Strings from D'Addario. These strings are nickel-plated for an accurate sound and prevention of premature wear and tear. D'Addario strings are among the most respected in the music industry, so you know when you tune up your bass with these strings, it's sure to sound better than ever.

When searching for strings, your best bet is to try out a few different options until you find the ones that really suit your style. With plenty of types to mix and match, half the fun is exploring the different strings! When you find the roundwound strings that are right for you, you'll be happy to hear your playing come alive like never before.
