Acoustic Bass Guitar Strings

This section is dedicated to finding the right strings for acoustic bass guitars, which can be challenging instruments to get the right mix of clarity and definition with the warmth of the acoustic sound.

An excellent set of strings for this are Thomastik Acousticore, which have a great balance of low end depth and clarity. The material is phosphor bronze on a nylon core. In my opinion, they really deliver what is needed to make these instruments sound good not only by yourself in a room, but in a live situation. It is certainly no coincidence that Thomastik has for many years made many of the most popular upright bass strings.

These strings are quite light and low tension, and have a bit of a "rolling" effect like most classical strings. They also take some time to settle in like most strings on acoustic instruments, so be aware of this when changing them based on your performance schedule.
