There are a lot of different bass guitar strings out there, and although most of them look the same, each manufacturer makes their strings slightly differently and so each has its own subtle differences in tone and feel.


Most Bass guitar strings are made from a nickel coated steel wrap wire wound around a core wire made of steel.  This round wound gives the bass guitar strings their distinctive sound.

You can also get flat wound bass guitar strings. These have an inner steel core wire and wrapped around that is a thin ribbon of chrome plated steel which is very smooth and elimates finger squeek. But these sound very different to the round wound strings, more mellow.

When should you change the strings on a bass guitar?

Here are a couple of questions to answer:

1) Have you had the same strings on for over 6 months?
2) Are your strings rusty?
3) Do your strings sound dull?
4) Had a string break recently?
5) Do your strings smell?

If you answered yes to any of the above, its probably time to replace your bass guitar strings.

The strings on a bass guitar are much more substantial and tend to hold their tone and last longer than on an electric or acoustic guitar. Though the gaps between the windings of the string gets full up with sweat,dead skin, oil and dirt from your fingers and makes the strings dirty, smelly and tonally flat.

If you play hard or play often, then change bass strings about every 3 to 4 months. If you don't play that hard and don't play that regularly then change your strings about every 6 months.
