It wouldn't be far-fetched to say that the acoustic bass guitar was an instrument ahead of its time when it was first introduced in the mid-50s. Today, you'd be hard-pressed to find a musician who isn't familiar with the instrument. With that in mind, those who play the acoustic bass know that their choice of strings will have a huge impact on their instrument's resulting sound. Thankfully, string manufacturers like Elixir, D'Addario, Ernie Ball and Martin each design their own acoustic bass guitar strings, and they can all be found offering their own sets in this selection.

To get a good idea of which acoustic bass guitar strings are right for you, it helps to try out a variety of different types. Of course, you can always speed up your decision by taking your own music tastes into consideration. For example, a heavier-gauge string will deliver a warm tone while a lighter-gauge produces a brighter, somewhat-softer sound. Phosphor bronze roundwound strings are very popular thanks to their versatility, and you'll find more than enough options in this catalog. Need a place to start your search? Check out DR Strings Rare Phosphor bronze Acoustic Bass Strings. They're a top seller in this catalog, and rock and blues musicians alike favor them for their fat, loud sound and deep bottom end.

Now, for those who want something on the lighter side, try the Martin MSP4800 4-String SP Light Acoustic Bass Strings. These high-performance strings are the result of research done in cooperation with specialty steel producers. From their superior tonal quality to their incredible durability, this set will impress any demanding pro-level musician. For that matter, the same can be said for the D'Addario EXPPBB170 Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Bass Strings. Boasting computer-controlled strapping around a hex core, these strings are amazingly consistent and their brilliant tone holds up through countless amounts of use.

By now it's probably obvious that you'll have no problem finding an acoustic bass guitar string set that matches your playing style, so the next move is yours. Since groups like Violent Femmes and shows like MTV Unplugged put the acoustic bass on the mainstream radar in the '80s, it has never been easier to find an acoustic bass guitar string set that's long-lasting and sounds great. Give one of the acoustic bass guitar string sets in this section a shot and you'll surely agree.
