GHS debuted the Big Core Bass line of bass strings at Bass Player Live! this year. The strings feature a combination of stainless steel and nickel-iron wraps over a larger core.
The increased core-to-cover ratio design is optimized for drop tunings without having to use heavier gauges. The set is rounded out with a tapered E string that maintains balance and tone from the G to E strings.
GHS Strings’ Big Core Bass sets are manufactured in Michigan. They’re available with a MSRP of $47.66 and a street price closer to $24.99. For more info, check out the GHS website.
