Elrick ES5-M 5-String Bass Strings
These 5-string 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.
More Resonance - Stronger Fundamental
Elrick ES5-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 Bass Strings With Smooth Feel - Less String Noise
Because these bass strings have a thinner outer string wrap wire that reduces string noise and finger grab. You can move throughout the fingerboard with ease.
ES5-M 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.
