String gauge is what determines how your bass strings will sound and feel. While heavier string gauges produce richer, lower tones and require stronger fingers to play, gauges on the lighter side of things make for quicker, slicker playing action. Of course, there are other bass string gauges on today's market as well; in fact, some manufacturers even mix-and-match string gauges, while others offer specialty string sets for those who play specifically in drop-down tuning. From flatwounds and tapewounds to even signature bass string sets from famous bass players, you'll find it all, right here.

If you're still fairly new to playing the bass, you should know that there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to bass string gauges. The right ones for you will be a matter of personal preference. For this reason, it never hurts to find out what your favorite groups use for a better idea of which bass strings will suit your tastes best. For example, if you're influenced by American bass icon Billy Sheehan, you owe it to yourself to try his signature string set. A top seller, the Rotosound BS66 Billy Sheehan Bass Strings are used by the bass master himself. Or, maybe your music of choice is doom or stoner metal - in which case, the DR Strings Drop-Down Tuning Heavy Bass Strings are for you. These strings are said to be "so stable it is almost eerie." Clean, clear and accurate, the DDTs are a must-try for anyone whose tastes lie more on the dark side.

As mentioned earlier, you'll also find nylon tapewound strings in this section. Tapewounds contain nylon tape that's wrapped around the outer wire wrap. The result: a mellow tone that's somewhere between the thump of an upright double bass and the warmth of a flatwound string. Sound appealing? Go with the Fender 9120 Nylon Tapewound Bass Strings - they're ideal for anyone who's looking for a tone that's all their own.

Like guitarists, every bassist has their own preferences when it comes to string gauge - and as is obvious in this catalog, other bass string gauges beyond the traditional light, medium and heavy gauges are very easy to come by. Just take your time browsing each option, think about the bass sound you want to create, and the bass string gauge for you will be spotted sooner rather than later.
