Elrick EN5-M 5-String Nickel Bass Strings

Elrick 5-string nickel bass strings were developed in collaboration with renowned string designer Les Cooper (DR, Dunlop). Made in the U.S.A. with high-grade string wire to provide accurate stable tuning and intonation, and piano-like clarity without harshness.

  • Medium Gauge Set .045 .065 .085 .105 .130
  • More Resonance - Stronger Fundamental

    Elrick EN5-M strings have a heavier hexagonal core wire, a thicker inner wrap wire, and a thinner outer wrap wire. So, you'll notice more resonance, stronger note fundamental, and dynamic responsiveness.

    5-String Nickel Bass Strings With Smooth Feel - Less String Noise

    Because these strings have a thinner outer string wrap wire that reduces string noise and finger grab. You can move throughout the fingerboard with ease. And the strings feel great!

    Balanced Tension

    EN5-M nickel bass strings are computer controlled machine wound for precise string to string tension and balance, greater string consistency and brightness.

    Why We Like These Bass Strings

    We have played and sold many brands of strings. And we've done numerous (so many, we lost count) bass setups. String choice is personal and we get it. But, we have found Elrick strings to be very consistent, balanced across the fingerboard, and intonate very well. And one more big factor, they bring a liveliness to any bass we've installed them on.

      Bought a set of these for my Sadowsky Metro a few weeks back based on Dave’s recommendation. Break-in time was relatively quick- I put them on a few days before a rehearsal and they were playable but still a bit zingy, and by the next rehearsal one week later they were perfect (didn’t do much playing in between so they can likely be broken in much faster).

      I love the feel of them- I prefer nickel strings for the slick feel under my fingers more than the sound, and these strings feel great. I’m also really happy with the tension; they’re stiff enough to get a nice clean pull without hurting the fingers.

      Tone-wise, they’re nice and crisp with lots of low fundamental. I like a nickel string that is still somewhat bright, and these certainly check all of those boxes. Time will tell how long they last, but so far I’m very happy with them.

      I would recommend these strings. They’re a couple bucks more than your run-of-the-mill five string sets, but worth the money in my opinion! Thanks Dave!
