Instruments & Gear

These bass guitar strings from Ernie Ball are tailored to fit short scale (~30”) basses.  

The strings offer a superior slinky feel and consist of nickel-plated steel wrapped around a tin-plated high carbon steel core that compliments all electric bass types and playing styles. 

Each set is packaged in an ultra-low humidity environment, and the strings are available in gauges .040, .060, .080 .100
