These are Ernie Ball Slinky nickel-plated steel bass guitar strings.
Big, powerful, full-bodied tone with classic Ernie Ball fizz and literally ‘Slinky’ feel. Looking for a great all-round bass tone with flexible and springy feel? Here you goâ€¦ . These will give you everything you need to sound amazing playing almost any style. FYI, pair with a P-bass for absolute rock ’n’ roll power!
Ernie Ball Slinky bass strings are made using their smooth nickel-plated steel wire wrapped over a high carbon, tinned steel hex core for consistently good tuning stability and intonation.
Every Ernie Ball Slinky bass set is made at their factory in Coachella, CA where the ambient humidity is 0% creating perfect conditions for string making. Once sealed in their air-tight foil wraps these strings stay factory fresh until they’re put on your bass.

**PLEASE NOTE** These strings measure 37" / 94cm from the ball end to the start of the taper. These strings have no silk winding at either end of the string.

We insist that players use the measurement of ball-end (anchor) to top nut of their current set of strings. This measurement is more accurate than scale length as it takes into account through-body stringing, and more complex or alternative bridges. In many cases the set of strings required will be longer than the bass’s stated scale length! Use these references:
If ball-end-to-nut length is:
Up to 32” choose Short Scale
32”-34” choose Medium Scale
34”-36” choose Long Scale
36”-38” choose Extra/Super Long Scale
If you have a bass where you cannot see the ball-end i.e. a thru-body bass, you will have to measure your string once it has been removed. Before removing the string be sure to make a mark on the string with a permanent marker just behind the nut so you know where to measure to. Then once you’ve taken it off the bass, you can measure from the ball-end to the mark you made on the string.
