Resonator guitar with a pickup? These are great strings! Good sound, reasonable price

Nice, mellow sound, which is what I hope for from the all nickel strings. The nickel gives a
special tone when your guitar is plugged in, more mellow than regular electric guitar strings.
Good tone, electric or acoustic Price is a bit higher than regular strings, especially for Canadian customers, with the US/CAD exchange rate

great strings for metal resonator
November 14, 2019
Tried quite a few different strings after buying my Gretsch G9202, these gave me the exact
sound I was looking for. Combined with a ceramic slide its a swampy, smooth tone that
resonator blues were made for. Wish I had this set-up 50 years ago I'd probably be good
by now.
classic blues sound none

My Favorite Dobro Strings
October 1, 2019
Special thanks to Florida dobro buddy, Bill Keen, for recommending "Just Strings" and GHS pure nickel rollerwound to me. The great thing about these strings is their longer life and practically zero distracting string noise during slides and slants. The great thing about "Just Strings" is their ability to provide custom gauges so I can order specific gauges for alternative tunings (D,A,D,F#,A,D or Brother Oswald's A,C#,E,A,C#,E) for separate dobros.
Longer Life, very little string noise, good sustain, great for recordings String volume is slightly less but if you're using a good pick-up or quality condenser mic that shouldn't be a concern.

GHS Roller Wound for dobro
March 24, 2010
I love these strings and use them exclusively on a 76 Gibson acoustic adapted for slide. I play them with a Fishman strip, outboard Fishman preamp into a Fender tube amp. They sound and play amazing... three is only one problem.. they are too hard to get...

 GHS Strings


"GHS Corporation is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high quality strings for fretted instruments. GHS produces strings for electric, acoustic and classic guitar, electric bass, banjo, mandolin, and a wide array of specialty and ethnic instruments. From Battle Creek, Michigan, USA (where GHS was founded in 1964), fresh-from-the-factory strings and music products are delivered direct to retail stores in the USA and to distributors in over 70 countries around the world.

With over 200 standard sets and 700 single strings, GHS has a set that is right for you.

String Design

The string specialists at GHS bring a craftsman-like approach to each aspect of string design. From material selection to such intricate factors as core-to-cover ratio, winding direction, wire tension and alteration of the wire, GHS designs state-of-the-art strings that enhance the sound quality of all playing styles and instruments. And with ongoing research, GHS develops string innovations that anticipate music trends and instrument modifications worldwide.

String Manufacturing

To build a quality product, state-of-the-art equipment is a necessity. At GHS, all strings are made on machinery designed and built in-house. The GHS design engineers utilize the latest technology to develop computer controlled string making machines that monitor such intricate parameters as the number and type of twists on the ball end, winding speed and direction, core and cover wire tension, cover wire angle and wind length. Modern quality control methods ensure that the final product meets GHS's rigid specifications.

Factory Fresh

GHS knows that you want your strings to be as fresh as the day they were made. All GHS facilities are environmentally regulated to control temperatures and humidity. Sensitive raw materials and bulk products are further wrapped in protective bags for storage. Coiled strings are placed in string packets that, in independent laboratory tests, have proven to offer the optimum protection from humidity. Finally, the GHS swift order shipment (usually within 24 hours of order placement) guarantees that GHS strings arrive in your retail store factory-fresh.

How String Material Affects Tone and Feel

The hardness of common materials used in the cover wire of strings affects both the tone and "feel" of a string. Usually, with all else remaining constant, the harder the material the brighter the string. This relationship shows why stainless steel produces a very bright sound and nickel, a softer material, produces a warmer sound. However, a hard material can be abrasive to both fingers and frets. At GHS, our unique "Alloy 52", used in Progressives and White Bronze strings, is softer and less abrasive than a stainless steel but produces a tone almost as bright. Common cover wire materials include (ranked by order of brightness) stainless steel, Alloy 52, nickel plated steel, pure nickel, and for acoustics, brass and bronze.

The core wire for all strings and all plain steel strings (both acoustic and electric) are made from tin plated Swedish steel."
