“Clear as a bell with great tone and playability and long lasting,” is the high praise many of our customers give Thomastik-Infeld electric bass strings. They are offered in four series – Infeld, Flatwound, Nickel Round Wound and Power Bass sets. All Thomastik-Infeld strings are wound on round cores giving them more flexibility and response sensitivity over hexagonal core strings. Their high quality of materials and manufacture are world renown.

The Flatwound series strings have round steel cores with pure nickel ribbon (flat) windings in 4, 5, and 6-string sets in 32”, 34” and 36” scales. These are Thomastik-Infeld’s most popular, electric bass guitar strings. A silk inlay used only by Thomastik-Infeld is layered between the winding enhancing their natural, warm tones. Colored silk wrappings at the end of the strings keep the windings locked in place. As jazz bass strings they give you a vintage, jazz bass sound and superb responsiveness. Customers say they have a “buttery, smooth feel, no finger noise and are the most musical strings I've ever played,” have a “deep, thunder like sound” and a “terrific robust and articulate sound.” They are lighter tension than most flat wounds and more flexible due to the round core. Their highly polished surface has little finger squeak. These qualities increase their playability and ease on the fingers. Thomastik-Infeld utilizes unique string gauging to achieve their outstandingly, balanced string response and tone. The low B string especially is praised by many customers. These sets should work on fretted or fretless basses.

Thomastik-Infeld’s Nickel Round Wound series of strings are available in five sets, including 4, 5 and 6 string sets in 32”, 34” and 36” scale lengths. A happy player of the JR324 set reports, “The only strings I'll ever use on it. Warm and rich all the way down the neck. They stay in tune better, and last forever!”

The Infeld series strings are Thomastik-Infeld’s “Superalloy” round wound strings in 4, 5 and 6-strings and in long and extra long scale. Since the outer layer of the windings is “SuperAlloy”, these strings keep a warm tone and are easier on an instrument’s fretwork than stainless steel. A pleased customer reports that these strings have a “modern” sound with “beautiful warm mids, clear lows and sweet highs. Great for slapping and pizz tool. The Infeld strings fill that gap for me and sound fantastic, without being high tension, and do not fight you at all. Clear as a bell with great tone and playability and fairly long lasting. (IN344).”

The Power Bass sets are composed of strings round wound on a hexagonal core unlike most of Thomastik-Infeld’s other strings which are wound on a round core. Beefy “Magnecore” wire is wound on the ultra thin, steel, hexagonal core. This unique design allows the flexible core and robust windings to deliver a clear, crisp sound with ultimate output. “Best strings I have ever used. Long lasting, punchy and driving. They really cut through the mix. They are very pliable and have a great feel under my fingers. These are great quality. You definitely get what you pay for (EB345),” says a pleased customer.
