Steinberger Double Ball Bass Guitar Strings
Complete sets are listed below. Individual Steinberger, double ball guitar strings can be found in the “Single String” section. IMPORTANT: Unless otherwise indicated the sets listed in this section only fit original design Steinberger instruments and may not fit later designs. Double ball, or “Steinberger”, guitar strings have balls at both ends of the string and are designed to fit Steinberger guitars and licensed Steinberger copies. These electric guitars and similar electric bass guitars were developed in the 1980’s by Ned Steinberger. With a minimalist "headless" design and tuners placed on a tailpiece mounted to the front of the guitar, the Steinberger guitars and basses were designed for better overall balance and for weight reduction. They were made entirely of a graphite and carbon-fiber mix for lighter weight.
If you play a Steinberger bass, you'll need specially made strings with double ball ends. We have professional-quality, premium Steinberger bass strings crafted by D'Addario, GHS, La Bella, Ken Smith and RotoSound – all leaders in the industry. Ken Smith is an elite bass manufacturer, and their strings have the same high-end quality as their instruments. We have their stainless steel round-wound Steinberger double ball bass strings in various gauges, and also as 5-string and 6-string sets. From D'Addario, string makers since the 1600s, we carry nickel-wound regular light and medium gauge Steinberger strings. La Bella, another family of string manufacturers from 17th century Italy, offers stainless steel double ball flat-wound bass strings in different gauge sets, and also black nylon tape-wound strings for Steinberger instruments. We also have 4-string and 5-string round-wound sets from RotoSound and stainless steel round-wound Steinberger strings from GHS. These are all complete sets.
