Please Note: Custom Bass string sets often have to be wound to order, so please allow up to 2 weeks for your set to be completed. If you are under a time crunch, please write [email protected] with your requested gauges before placing your order to check availability.
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 finding the right setup? Check out our String Tension Calculator, or give us a shot at [email protected]
Our Short Scale Nickel-Plated Steel Roundwound bass string sets have a taper at 32″ from the ball end. This is the ideal taper-length for most 29″ and 30″ scale basses.

Typically, it takes 1-2 business days (M-F) to process your order, regardless of the shipping option selected at checkout. We run on a lean manufacturing model, so when you order strings directly from us, they were made fresh just for you. 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.
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.
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.
