Elixir Strings has announced some new changes to their popular line of coated bass strings, including a new coated stainless steel set. The stainless steel strings are designed to offer the bright and clear tone of stainless bass strings, but easier on the fingers and longer tone life.
The company’s original nickel-plated bass strings have been tweaked to offer improved tone, feel and flexibility.
Elixir Strings said the improvements come thanks to player feedback. The company refined their patented NANOWEB coating specifically for the bass with this update, for both comfort and durability.
“We’re proud to be the creator of the coated bass strings category,” says Product Manager Steve Rosenberg. “But we’re always looking to improve. We talked with a lot of bass players to get their sense of what they wanted in a bass string—coated or uncoated. With the new Stainless strings and the improved Nickel-plated strings, players are now telling us that Elixir Strings for bass not only have a long tone life, but they sound great and feel great as well.”
Elixir Strings is demoing the new strings at the NAMM Show this weekend (Hall C, Booth 4272). For more information, visit the Elixir Strings website.
