If you’re looking for the tastiest set of bass strings ever, then buddy have I got a treat for you. You better hop in ‘cause we’re going straight to flavor town with this Light set.

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.
Stringjoy bass strings are made by a small team in the USA, out of all American materials: top quality nickel alloy, hand wound around a high carbon hexagonal steel wire.
The combination of better materials and more careful craftsmanship creates a more natural-sounding, longer lasting string, without the tone-deadening effects of string coatings.
We’re known for our quality control. Our strings are wound in small batches, and we use real human beings at every step of the process: the winding, the coiling, the packing, you name it.
Every string is inspected individually before it goes into your set. If anything is wrong with a string, from the way it’s secured around the ball end, through the entire winding, it doesn’t make the cut.
What does a higher quality set of bass strings mean for you?
- Better tuning stability for the life of the string
- Longer string life and less breakage, when cared for properly
- Smoother, more balanced playability across the neck of the bass
