Bass Strings Chooser
This progressive filter can suggest strings that are appropriate for your bass and your playing style. It's not an exact prescription - many factors can affect the way the strings work on your bass. Please note that in nearly every case, changing brands of strings will also require a sound post adjustment and a break-in period of as much as 2 weeks before you really discover what the strings will do. The best gear sometimes poses a challenge to your technique (example, strings that require high precision with bow placement/weight, but which reward you with lightning-fast response). Not every string brand is on the list of recommendations - just those which we feel we can wholeheartedly recommend for the purpose. There are many more choices - see our String Characteristics chart for more.

I need strings for this playing style (choose one):
Arco playing (with the bow): Orchestral, solo, etude playing
Pizzicato playing (without the bow): jazz, bluegrass, etc.
One string to rule them all (example, jazz and classical): 'hybrid' or 'crossover' strings
