Optima Electric Bass Guitar Strings

Optima Gold electric bass strings are round wound with the highest quality steel wire, which is plated with 24 carat gold and then wound over a steel hex core. Their exclusive blend of gold and alloy gives these strings their great tone, sustain, corrosion resistance and extended life. Five long scale sets are available from ultra light (.035-.090) to medium gauge (.050-.105).

The gold plating is useful to players with nickel and steel allergies. One customer says, “These are a godsend if you have metal or nickel allergies and react to stainless or nickel-plated strings. They also keep their brightness for a long time…”

While not gold plated, the Pure Nickel RB Flatwound strings are intended to produce the "thump" of the 1950's and 1960's era.
