Stringjoy Custom 4 String Long Scale Nickel Wound Bass Guitar Strings

Your tone starts with your strings. That’s why Stringjoy will always let you hand pick your string gauges—so you can choose the perfect strings for your bass and your playing style.

Want a .030 on the top and a .105 on the bottom? We can do that. I wouldn’t recommend it, but we can do it. Want each string to be a .060? I’m not sure why you would, but we can make it happen.

Need some help figuring out the right setup? Check out our String Tension Calculator, or give us a shout at [email protected]

Our Long Scale Nickel-Plated Steel Roundwound bass string sets have a taper at 37.1″ from the ball end. This is the ideal taper-length for all 34″ and most non-string-thru 35″ scale basses.

Once you’ve settled on the right gauges, just hit the red button below to add ’em to your cart.

Frequently asked questions

Typically, standard sets take 1-2 business days (M-F) to make and ship, regardless of the shipping option selected at checkout. In rare cases we experience extremely high demand and it may take a few extra days for your order to ship. We ship Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and holidays. You will receive a confirmation e-mail with a tracking link once your order ships.

Bass Strings at Stringjoy are currently Made to Order—please allow 1 – 2 weeks for your strings to be wound, inspected, coiled and packaged. If we can make them faster, we will, but this is a good expectation to go in with. It’s our goal to build up enough stock to ship bass strings just as fast as electric and acoustic strings, but currently the demand on the bass side keeps growing faster than we can train new Master Winders (as bass strings are the most complex strings we manufacture, only the top tier of winders at Stringjoy are certified to wind them).

Almost certainly. We make our strings longer than just about any company to ensure that they will fit on all guitars. All plain steel strings are 43″, wound guitar strings are 46.5″ total with a 39.75″ winding length, and bass strings are 54″ total with a 48″ winding length (or 45″ for short and medium scale bass strings). Bass strings and guitar strings heavier than .060 have varying taper lengths, for full details please see “How long are your strings?” on our FAQs page. For bass strings, please note that our strings do not currently fit 37″ multi-scale basses, but we are working on a line for that.

Our goal is to make strings that sound fuller, feel smoother, and last longer than the other strings on the market. Having a slightly higher price-point enables us to be more selective with which materials make it into your set, and to afford the skilled staff that we need to craft strings that are a cut above the rest.

Yes, we make all our strings in our shop in Nashville, TN. We know that many brands do not, but we’ve never wanted to be like the rest of the string brands out there. It’s our mission to make the best strings in the world, and we couldn’t do that unless we could own and master every portion of the process ourselves. We obsess over every single detail of our strings, and we believe that once you install them, you’ll immediately be able to tell the difference a quality string makes.
