Kemp Strings Lumped 45s for 4 or 5 string bass guitar are the world’s first equal sensitivity electric bass guitar strings and come precision engineered with raised mass near the saddle for all strings. It is possible to purchase these strings on pre-order with approximately one month lead time from this website. You can choose whether the strings are optimised for surface mounted or through mounted Fender® style bass bridges for a scale length of 34 inches. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for enquiring about strings for basses of different scale lengths or non-standard distances of string between the ball end and saddle. Feel free to email for strings where only the thickest string(s) are given lumps. Never before has the tone, harmonic support and intonation for musical harmony been so consistent throughout the playing range as seen in the latest open access peer reviewed research paper by Dr Jonathan Kemp of Kemp Strings. The distances and forces required for pitch bends have never been more finely matched. Roundwound with nickel plated steel (a.k.a. Nickel Wound) these strings feature hex cores. Welcome to the next generation of bass guitar strings. You can also read more about our lumped bass guitar strings in the blog post on the topic.
Gauges are 45, 60, 81, 108 for standard four strings plus 146 for five string sets. Sets consisting of 60, 81, 108 and 146 for BEAD tuning are also available.
