Bass Guitar Help

      One of the biggest factors in the sound of bass guitar strings is the wrap wire. This wire is wrapped around a core wire to provide deeper and more sustained mid-range and bass tones for your bass guitar. While tone will vary slightly in each guitar's pickup, here are general characteristics of different wrap wire materials:

      • Steel Electric Bass Guitar Strings offer rich, detailed highs with tight, powerful lows, creating a "piano-like" tone. Generally the brightest and most magnetic strings.

      • Nickel Electric Bass Guitar Strings offer bright tone, with excellent intonation due to the 8% nickel-plated wrap wire. These are great for magnetic pickups and a wide range of playing styles.

      • Acoustic Bass Guitar Strings will mirror the same characteristics as Acoustic Guitar Strings.

      The profile of the wrap wire also effects tone and feel with:
      • Round wound being the brightest and roughest
      • Half round being warmer and smoother
      • Flat wound being the most mellow and smoothest.
