ABOUT BASS GUITAR STRINGS

Ernie Ball, along with Leo Fender, created one of the world's first modern acoustic bass guitars in the early 1960s. He wanted to create an instrument that would better match the acoustic guitar. An innovator in instruments as well as the strings that go on those instruments, Ernie Ball now sells over 100 different types of bass guitar strings including the popular super slinky bass guitar strings.

Noteworthy bassists who use Ernie Ball strings include Paul McCartney,Tony Levin, Mark Hoppus, Mike Herrera, Johnny Christ, Dave La Rue, John Myung, and Juan Alderete.

Before you start shopping, you'll need to consider the number of strings on your bass, the scale length, your playing style and musical genre, how often you play, and the tonal quality desired.

Our popular roundwound bass strings have a bright tone made for rock and funk musicians. Our flatwound bass guitar strings are the best bass strings for jazz and country musicians who prefer a smoother and more mellow feel. Ernie Ball uses high quality nickel, stainless steel, chrome plated steel, cobalt, and copper for its bass guitar strings.
