GHS Strings has expanded their line of bass strings with the new Balanced Nickels set, which they describe as a combination of traditional string materials and modern string design.
“Traditionally, bass strings are made by wrapping one cover wire around the core to create the G, two covers for the D and A, and three covers for the E string,” the company explains. “GHS’ Balanced Nickels bass strings change all this: in these new sets, they manufacture the G and the E strings by wrapping two covers around the core, bringing a fresh symmetry to the sets. The result is an equilibrium between tonality, tension, flexibility, and playability.”
The strings come in light and medium gauges for four and five-string basses. They also offer a short scale set in a medium gauge. The GHS Balanced Nickels are available starting at $20 for a four-string set.
