Electric Bass Guitar Strings

Who's the greatest electric bass player ever? Paul McCartney? John Entwistle? John Paul Jones? Victor Wooten? Somebody else?

While it's fun to debate the issue, there's no debate about the fact that Strings By Mail offers a fabulous selection of electric bass guitar strings. Find your favorite strings from top manufacturers like D'Addario, Dogal, DR, Elixir, GHS, and La Bella, among others. You're also bound to find some cool new strings to try.

We offer electric bass guitar strings in sets and often as singles, letting you replace a lone broken string or create your own custom set.

When choosing electric bass guitar strings, keep in mind that scale lengths are measured from the nut to the saddle:

Short scale: less than 30"
Medium scale: 30-33"
Long scale: 34"
Extra long scale: more than 34"

We've got your guitar accessory needs covered, too, with everything from cables to picks (be sure to check out the Wedgie rubber picks).
