Stringjoy Light Top / Heavy Bottom Gauge (45-105) 4 String Nickel Wound Bass Guitar Strings
This Light Top Heavy Bottom set is the best of both worlds when it comes to bass guitar strings. The top ones will give you snappiness reminiscent of Indiana Jones’ whip, while the low strings will give you enough power to name your amp “The Temple of Boom” thanks to the round core-wire that we use in all of our bass strings.
If you’re looking for a set that even Jonesy would be proud of, then I think it’s safe to say you’ve stumbled upon the Holy Grail of bass guitar strings. Oh, and you don’t have to worry about any ghosts or lightning bolts emerging from the box. We made sure to leave those out.
Stringjoy bass guitar strings are roundwound from American nickel alloy windings and round steel core wire. They have a full, resonant low end and a medium top end—not too bright, not too mellow — giving these strings a balanced sonic profile with optimum output.
The tapers on our bass strings are halfwound to better enable the string to wind around the tuning peg and hold tune once it’s there. The process is very similar to how “silked” end strings are made, but we leave off the silk.
Unless otherwise noted, our bass strings have a 38″ winding length, ideal for both 34″ and 35″ scale basses.

OUR GUARANTEE IS SIMPLE.
If you don't love it, we'll replace it. No hassle, no fine print, no questions asked.
To put it simply, fresh bass strings, made with quality materials and genuine care just sound and play better.
- Stringjoy bass strings are made by a small team in the USA, out of all American materials: top quality nickel alloy, hand wound around a high carbon round-core steel wire.
- The combination of better materials and more careful craftsmanship creates a more natural-sounding, longer lasting string, without the tone-deadening effects of string coatings.
- We’re known for our quality control. Our strings are wound in small batches, and we use real human beings at every step of the process: the winding, the coiling, the packing, you name it.
- Every string is inspected individually before it goes into your set. If anything is wrong with a string, from the way it’s secured around the ball end, through the entire winding, it doesn’t make the cut.
What does a higher quality set of bass strings mean for you?
✓ Better tuning stability for the life of the string
✓ Longer string life and less breakage, when cared for properly
✓ Smoother, more balanced playability across the neck of the bass
Our guarantee is what we say it is. If anything does not perform to your satisfaction, return it for a replacement or refund. No hassle, no worries.
One last note: Our bass strings have a unique winding style at the tail end (the one that goes around the tuning peg). We use the same winding style as is featured on “silked” strings, but we leave off the silk for maximum cohesion, which leads to better tuning stability. They rule.

How much does shipping cost?
All US orders ship free, so long as they’re over $20. Alaska and Hawaii too. Simple as that. No tax (except for our fellow TN residents), no extra handling charges, nothing.
We do ship internationally as well, though unfortunately we can’t do it for free, but we get as close to it as we can. There’s some more info on all that at the bottom of this tab.
How long will it take for my order to ship?
Most string and pick orders ship within 3 business days, many within 1 business day (Monday – Friday, minus postal holidays). We want to get your gear out as quickly as possible, but quality is important to us above all, and we will not rush the process.
The most important thing to us is that everything in your order is perfect, and that’s why we take the time to put together and inspect each individual order by hand.
Do you ship outside of the US?
We’ll ship most anywhere in the world. Our site will automatically calculate the shipping costs on the checkout page. We’ve worked really hard to get international shipping costs super low (they start below $3 an order, depending on weight and destination country), and we do subsidize them substantially to keep them that way.
Due to the wealth of country tax and tariff codes the world over, any and all import duties or fees are the responsibility of the purchaser.
Typically, international orders arrive in 1-3 weeks, though occasionally packages will take a bit longer and still arrive safe and sound, so we don’t consider a package to be “lost” until 6 weeks from the shipment date. As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or trouble with your order, we’re here to help.
