Not a fan
August 7, 2022
I dunno if I got a bad set or I just don't like em. So I put em on a P-bass first and they were "ok". True they do have a lot less finger noise (as opposed to "rounds"). The "D" string sounds horrible. Its very hard to describe, but its not a clean / solid tone to it. Theres almost a resonant freq ringing out with it. So I left it for a few days - hated it and carefully took em off. I then put them on a J-bass.... Same thing, the "D" was horrible, so much so that it distracted me from the others. Don't know if its characteristic of the brand, or if its a manuf flaw of some sort. They lasted a week and I cut em off.... For what its worth, they do have a nice "feel" in terms of string tension
Nice "feel" in terms of tension Very unequal in terms of sound across the 4 strings. "D" string is horrible.

The best bass strings--period!
August 21, 2021
I had been a dedicated flatwound user forever--and then I discovered these. In short, they're as full sounding as any set of flats out there, but they have more clarity and midrange presence.

If you want to root on the D or G string, you can with these, That's how full and consistent-sounding these strings are, The E, A, D, and G all sound incredible. Buy them, and you won't be sorry!
Everything that's good in a bass string! Slightly stiff compared to most roundwound strings, but less stiff than most flats,

Sticking with These!
December 24, 2020
I have tried a slew of different brands and types of bass strings but once I tried these, I was done. I love these. They have the articulation and growl of round wounds but have a smooth feel that doesn't wear on my fingers as much. They sound wonderful and feel great, and have a more appealing price point. Recommended!
Very articulate and growly, and very comfortable to play. They mellow out nicely over a little play time. For those who like round wounds but would prefer a bit more of a flat wound feel, give these a try. None here.

Received them quickly and they sound great on my precision fretless.

My bass string order.
November 9, 2019
Many thanks for having my strings each time I order.
In one of the packages of my GHS L7200 bass strings the G string was to short for my long scale Fender P-Bass. I contacted Jim about the problem and he corrected the trouble by having GHS send me out a replacement which I received in less then a week. Way to go Jim and many thanks.

Didn’t work on my bass
November 1, 2019
These light gauge strings didnít work on my bass (NS Design Radius). It must have a very flat neck, because even with the truss rod backed off, these strings didnít have enough tension to work without all sorts of fret buzz, and intonation was impossible to set. I put my medium gauge strings back on, and everything is perfect.

GHS makes excellent strings, but for my particular bass, I need a bit heavier gauge. Iíve used medium GHS in the past and they have been great

Good quality, low price.

These are good strings. Good tone and consistent volume with uniform tension between strings. They settled down in around 8 hours of playing time. I got two months use before changing them. I use several makes of strings on my fretless including flat-wound, and will use these again.
Affordable round wound. None.

GHS Pressurewound .040-.096
December 12, 2010
These are great strings for keeping down annoying fret hand noises, but still have a good amount of sparkle and growl. Sounds almost as bright as plain ordinary round wound strings. They aren't quite as quiet on the fretting hand side as full flat wound strings, but the superior tone makes them an ideal choice for me. I use this guage on my Fender JP-90 and the heavier .044-.106 on my Fender Jazz Bass. Plus, juststrings.com has the best price on these!!

GHS pressure wound

GHS pressure wounds are THE fretless bass strings! They don't chew up the fingerboard like roundwounds. Very middy sound and HOT! I've used these strings for 16 years and couldn't be happier. Please continue these strings forever!

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."
