GHS Unveils Balanced Nickel Bass Strings

GHS Unveils Balanced Nickel Bass Strings

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.

Battle Creek, MI (October 13, 2017) -- GHS is delighted to launch their new Balanced Nickels strings for bass guitars, 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. 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.

Balanced Nickels are available in light and medium gauges for 4- and 5-string basses. Short Scale Balanced Nickels are also available.

GHS’ Balanced Nickel bass strings offer balanced construction, tonality, tension, flexibility and playability – that’s what they mean when they say, ‘play with the best, play GHS!’
