Fender 9050L Stainless Steel Flatwound Light Long Scale Bass Guitar Strings
Though Fender is known for their instruments and amplifiers, the company has actually made their own strings for quite a while now.
They may not be as popular as Ernie Ball or D’Addario strings, they have a pretty sizeable following.
- Gauge: Light (.045 to .100)
- Material: Stainless Steel
- Coated: No
Because these strings are flatwounds, they’re going to have a very warm tone when compared to roundwound strings.
They’re great for smooth basslines, jazz especially, but they’re not going to have the punch you’d get with roundwound strings.
This set’s gauge is a light enough to have a lot of playability, and because they’re flatwounds they’re not going to have the thin sound you usually get with lighter gauge strings. And like other flatwound strings, this set is going to last significantly longer than a set of roundwound strings.
These were previously on our main recommended list and only came off due to us changing our guide to focus on standard gauges. You can see our current recommendations at: The Best Bass Guitar Strings.
