OVERVIEW

Enhanced grip, longer lasting tone life thanks to special coating.

Prolong your tone 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- and five-string sets, 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?

Elixir Strings has re-invented the stainless steel bass string. Carefully designed to enhance everything you love about stainless steel and minimize everything you don’t (including its notoriously shrill sound), these electric bass guitar strings boast a bright, stainless tone with deep lows. 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 richer, more rounded bass tone, try their Nickel-Plated 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.

    Comments about Elixir Stainless Steel 5-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Light/Medium (.045-.135):

    I was using DR high beams... Even though I like bright for slapping and different things... The Drs are way too bright at first... After they break in they sound better... But they break in uneven... So I switched back to elixirs... And wow I'm back home again... Right as I put them on brand new... They sounded already broken in... And the beauty of it they will sound like that until I change them. They give me all the high-end that I need with a nice warm colorful Growl if I want. I'm very happy to have them back on my bass!

      Comments about Elixir Stainless Steel 5-String Bass Strings with NANOWEB Coating, Long Scale, Light/Medium (.045-.135):

      This is the first time that I tried these bass strings. I was expecting a little more for the money I paid for them. Sadly, they play, feel and sound like the old strings I just took off my bass! :( I do suspect that the coating will cause the strings to last for a while but I am a little disappointed with their response and performance in the studio. I have not played them on my rig and that might be my deception.
