More often than not, bass players who blast through fast scales and want more bite in their high end opt for light bass strings. Sets labelled "Light" and "Extra Light" contain the 040 gauge for the 1st (G) string - in fact, these sets are very popular among funk and jazz players who play short scale basses. In this section you'll discover that the world's most respected string manufacturers specialize in 040 gauge electric bass guitar strings like D'Addario, Elixir, DR Strings and Fender.

With so many bass string sets to choose from, you might want to consider refining your choices by "String Material" under the Category function. For example, if you like the comfortable feel and bright sound of nickel plated steel strings, simply click specifically on "Nickel Plated Steel" and only bass string options for that material will show up. There are many nickel plated steel strings here, including the top-selling D'Addario EXL220S XL Nickel Super Light Short Scale Electric Bass Strings. Precision-wound on D'Addario's computer-controlled machines, these strings have exceptional intonation, crystal-clear fundamentals and wonderful consistency.

Now, if you prefer stainless steel strings, use the same function mentioned above and you'll be given only those options. There are many popular choices and the Rotosound RS66LC Long Scale Swing Bass Strings are ideal for groovers who want a classic rock bass sound. Speaking of old-school bass tones, flatwound strings can also be found in these pages. Perfect for jazz bassists, flatwound strings are favored for their mellow, round tone, and the Ernie Ball 2808 Flat Wound Group IV Electric Bass Strings are an excellent example of this string type. From their smooth highs to their crisp lows and easy playability, these strings make for a truly one-of-a-kind playing experience.

As you can see, it's no wonder why 040 gauge electric bass guitar strings are used by such a diverse range of bassists. When you've dedicated yourself to linking the harmony and rhythm of your group, you deserve to showcase your skills on strings that were made with your hard-earned talents in mind. With that being said, any one of the electric bass guitar strings here are worthy of being fixed to your instrument.
