If anything could be described as the heart of your bass, it would definitely be the strings. After all, music is produced by vibrations, and in a bass guitar, it's the strings that do the vibrating. Not only that, but they're the direct connection between your fingertips and the instrument, which means that the way your strings feel is the biggest factor in how the instrument itself feels in turn. For all these reasons and more, your choice of bass guitar strings is one of the most important decisions you make - good thing, then, that it's a choice you can make more than once. Strings allow lots of room for experimentation, so feel free to try out a few different kinds!

There are a few crucial traits of strings that you'll want to factor in when choosing a set. One of those traits is the material; while most bass guitar strings are made of nickel-wrapped steel, there are some exceptions. A famous example would be Ernie Ball's Slinky Cobalt series strings, such as the 2736 Cobalt Regular Slinky 5-String Electric Bass Strings for extended-range bass guitars. With lots of flexibility, resistance to sweat and moisture, and a more active magnetic response that makes the strings more "visible" to the instrument's pickups, they're quickly becoming favorites for many bassists. Of course, if you want to keep it traditional, there are lots of classic nickel-wound strings to choose from - including the rest of Ernie Ball's Slinky lineup.

Another thing to keep an eye out for when selecting your bass guitar strings is the coating. For an old-school feel, you can stick to uncoated strings which will deliver great response with a textured feel under your fingers. But if you want your strings to last several times as long before needing a change, you should look into coated strings. Although coatings have a reputation for softening the strings' sound, that's not always the case. For example, Elixir's nanoweb coating is designed to fit over the windings of the strings as a super-thin tube, preserving that uncoated sound quality since it doesn't get inside the windings.

Choose your material, choose a coating (or no coating), and don't forget to sort out your options based on your desired gauges and the string count required for your instrument. Once you've narrowed down the choices based on these specifications, you'll be left with a much shorter list to sift through than the hundreds of string sets found in this category overall. And from that point, finding the best set for your needs will be a total cinch!
