Artist string set Review

Great strings when you’re on a low budget, they stay in tune, feel and sound like the major brands. Can’t beat that price when you’re in a pinch. Thanks Artist!

Bought a set of 45-100 bass strings for my Ibanez Roadstar 11 Bass as my old strings had lost a lot of brightness. For the price these strings are great value. Playability and tone are very good IMO. Speedy delivery as always. Thanks again.

Bass guitar strings- acoustic and electric

By: on 6 October 2020
I bought 2 sets of these strings-one set for an electric bass and the other for an acoustic bass with a pick up. I wanted to try the Artist bass strings after reading the other reviews and also because of the cost. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised how good these strings are! The lighter gauge suits me as they are easier to play. They are also stable in the tuning as well. The tone is very good on the electric and acoustic and will be able to replace them more frequently due to the great price! Thanks Artist Guitars

Strung out

By: on 4 September 2020
These are the best bass strings I have had, and they are a fraction of the price of other brands, which are maybe not as good. I was concerned at first, given the price, but how wrong can you be?

Excellent transaction; again

By: on 5 August 2020
This is the 3rd transaction I have done with Artist Guitars. I originally started buying from them as their prices were unbeatable & they offered the security of buying from an Australian business. Now, I wont shop anywhere else for parts & accessories pertaining to musical instruments. As the owner of a small business that re-sells a whole range of pre-loved items it is imperative that I offer my customers goods that are in the best possible condition & Artist Guitars allows me to do this economically & without having to wait weeks for delivery of ordered goods. Thanks guys, you rock.

Great Bass Strings

By: on 5 July 2020
I don’t know how they do them for the price, I bought a set to use for practice and rehearsal, thinking to replace them with something more expensive in a month or so. I can happily say I’ve been recording with the same strings, they are bright, sound great and don’t dull. I’ll be buying these strings from now on.

The strings i got is perfect and meets my expectations. I was able to slap, fingersyle and just what I needed. Thanks artist guitar!

Excellent bass strings on a shoestring budget!

I used to pay over $50 for a set of replacement bass strings back in the day. These sound just as good as the brand names for a fraction of the price. Highly recommended.

Excellent value

I have used Ernie Ball strings for years, but I decided to try the Artist brand and there really isn't any significant difference. At these prices, I'll continue to use the Artist strings.

Excellent product at a very reasonable price, delivery was earlier than expected. Customer service was excellent, there was a glitch with their billing system which was answered by the next day. Overall I would highly recommend 'Artist Guitars"
