Stringjoy Dylan Desmond (Bell Witch) Signature 6 String Long Scale Nicke Wound Bass Guitar Strings

In Stock and Ready to Ship.

$37.90

Seattle doom duo Bell Witch have carved a unique niche in the metal scene, utilizing only 6 string bass, drums, and vocals to create a minimal, mournful sonic texture all their own.

We reached out to Dylan years ago because we were fans, and we wanted to send him some 6 string bass strings optimized for the tuning he plays in (ACGCFA#). Dylan was kind enough to check them out, and a few weeks later he let us know what he thought:

“I love the strings! They’re much more heavy than what I’m used to (whatever pack of 6 is available at whatever store actually carries them!) and that aspect took me a minute to get used to. Once my fingers adapted I’ve found I’m getting much more rich tones and sustaining notes than what I’m used to. This is how these songs are meant to sound!”

Now we’re offering these strings as a custom set so you can get your bass to sound just as heavy as Dylan’s. And while supplies last, every set will come with a free Bell Witch patch.

Our Long Scale Nickel-Plated Steel Roundwound bass string sets have a taper at 37.1″ from the ball end. This is the ideal taper-length for all 34″ and most non-string-thru 35″ scale basses.

GUARANTEED TO GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED

Every product we sell is covered by our ironclad guarantee.

  • 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 hexagonal 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

Stringjoy long scale bass string sets have a taper at 37.1″ from the ball end. This is the ideal taper-length for all 34″ and most non-string-thru 35″ scale basses.
