A STRING FOR EVERYONE

With so many musicians experimenting with unique gauges and drop tunings it is hardly surprising to know that Swing Bass Custom Box Singles, first introduced in the '60s, enjoy more popularity now than ever before.

With such a wide range starting from 0.025" to 0.140" in increments of 0.005", there will be a gauge to suit everyone's custom set.
