Upright Bass Strings

Upright Bass Strings

Several upright bass string sets from Thomastik, Pirastro, LaBella, Corelli Savarez, and D'AddarioSo Many String Choices... What Should You Choose?

We carry an extensive selection of strings for upright basses. We also only have genuine strings; we get all of our strings from factory-authorized sources (despite protestations on their websites, I can assure you that I know that some of our competitors, touting their "lower than anyone" prices, do NOT. And many of their prices are higher than ours, anyway!) We also rotate string stock so you don't get "old" strings.

While it's great that we have so many to choose from, which ones will be best for you? There is so much to know about the character, tone, playability, construction, tension... strings for double basses can vary quite widely. Check out our String Buyer's Guides for help (Click "Bass Gear Buyer's Guides," just under our logo in the upper left.)

Single Strings Also Available for Purchase Separately

You don't need to buy a whole set to get the one string you need. Order individual strings from almost every set we sell; choosing single strings you can add to your cart is self-explanatory on each string page - and string singles and sets always ship free to all 50 US States! 

We also have several FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions) about strings, including a guide for changing your own strings, in our collection of free resources. And, of course, we're here for you -- you can always email or call us to help you narrow down the choices.
