Overview

Gauges - 45-65-85-105

Medium Gauge Cleartone Coated Bass Strings are made of nickel-plated steel over a hex core. A unique treatment called EMP coats the entire string with an ultrathin protective film. It's the thinnest coating ever applied to bass strings (less than one micron!) and will withstand more abuse from hard strumming than coatings 1000 times thicker! EMP ensures longer string life by protecting strings from corrosion due to skin acidity, salt, and moisture without compromising feel and sound. Made in the USA.

Features
  • Thinnest coating ever!
  • Dramatically increases string life
  • Protects strings from corrosion
  • Withstands hard strumming

Love 'em.

Comments about Cleartone Coated Medium Electric Bass Guitar Strings:

I've been using Cleartone strings for a couple of years now. They really have a great tone and feel to them. I have never had one snap, no matter how hard I slap-popped them. I have never had them go out of tune while I was playing. In my opinion, they outlast Elixirs in terms of tone quality over time. I will admit that the overall tone of Elixir strings tends to be a bit brighter, but the fantastic tone of Cleartone strings combined with their durability and "feel" makes them my first choice.

Not Satisfied

By

Comments about Cleartone Coated Medium Electric Bass Guitar Strings:

I have always been an Elixir guy when it came to strings. I like the brightness and the feel of those strings. I needed new strings considering that I had the same Elixir strings on for the eleven months and they still had a decent sound. I went to buy some new strings and I was recommended to try these new 'clear' tone strings. I bought them. I put them on my bass and for the first weeks they sounded clean, but then by the third week they started loosing their bright sound. I play at church with a five string five services a week, so I need strings that can keep up.

Nice strings

By 

from Appleton WI

Comments about Cleartone Coated Medium Electric Bass Guitar Strings:

I got these to put on a Ernie Ball Musicman 20th anniversary bass with an active pickup Played next to a 90's Ibanez with active EMG pickups with DR Hi Beams and Fender Jazz bass with ernie ball strings the Musicman was so much fuller, brighter and sounded awesome. Easy on my fingers too played longer.

Great Strings, but came with a short life span

By 

from Oak Lawn Illinois

Comments about Cleartone Coated Medium Electric Bass Guitar Strings:

I wanted to get a quality set of Coated Strings for the bass i use in shows i play. So i bought a set of these Cleartones. I was very impressed, but when the strings were only two weeks old, the G string snapped during a song in practice and brought the band to a screeching halt. I only recomend these strings for a bass that is lightly used.
