Your tone starts with your strings. That’s why Backroads Guitars will always let you hand pick your string gauges—so you can choose the perfect strings for your bass and your playing style.
We like to keep this custom ordered gauge set for our customers who play 5 string bass in a lower tuning to retain a normal playing tension.
Our Long Scale Nickel-Plated Steel Roundwound bass string sets have a taper at 37.1″ from the ball end. This is the ideal taper-length for all 34″ and most non-string-thru 35″ scale basses
