Bass Guitar Strings


It took more than a year of R&D and working with over 1000 bassists to develop Elixir® Strings for Bass. The NANOWEB® Coating on our Nickel Plated Steel and Stainless Steel Bass Strings is more durable, delivers unparalleled tone life and also raises the bar in tone, feel and response. Bass players tell us that Elixir® Strings retain their tone longer than any other string – uncoated or coated.






Electric Bass Nickel Plated Steel 4- and 5-String Foundation Sets with NANOWEB Coating for Bass

The Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings deliver a fuller rounder tone with greater clarity and a heavier presence in the mids. The NANOWEB Coating, created just for bass, gives the strings a more natural feel that's easier to grip while extending the tone life.
