After decades of building bass guitars and cooperating with bass players, Warwick developed strings that meet everybodys needs. The Warwick Bass Strings deliver high quality, long lasting strings with a smooth feel for effortless playability. With advancements in technology of materials and manufacturing techniques, we are able to produce very durable strings and lower the tension, but keep the traditional feel and sound. The Warwick Strings have a huge bottom end, but retain the midrange bark that cuts through any type of mix. They are well balanced and provide very precise intonation and an extremely wide dynamic range. Enhanced Molecular Protection" (EMP) is a special treatment for coating strings. With all advantages of the Warwick Black Label strings, the EMPs with their inconspicuous coating last even longer, and are impervious to oxidation and corrosion that naturally comes with long-term use. The Warwick EMP Strings are high quality strings made in the USA, and are used on all of our Warwick Masterbuilt and Custom Shop Basses. The Warwick EMPs are available string sets or singles strings.
