Good strings
My Fender American Special P came with rounds. They sounded pretty good but brighter than I like, especially on the G string - they were also rough on my hands - pretty rough winding.

I use GHS Boomers on one of my basses and love them, so I figured I'd give these a try. No regrets at all.

These strings have a GREAT FEEL, tension is just right on my P bass, and they have a very good range - you can brighten them up nicely up you need it to cut through, or roll back the tone and get very warm and mellow - and they don't cost $45! GHS strings are a great bang for the buck.

Just Strings is the best! I order some strings on a Monday and they're here on a Tuesday. What's not to like? Thank you for creating a great little company.

GHS Brite Flats
Well, yet another brilliant GHS product!
Just as it says, brite for a flat, not too flat, not too brite, and just right!
Great tone overall!
Highly recommended, and kudos to GHS for such great strings at cool prices!

Great tone and feel
I just had the M3075 set installed on my Rickenbacker 4003FL and let me tell you, I'm really loving it. At these gauges the strings are not too floppy so you can strike hard to get some crunch but the note will still sustain. The best thing is how bizarrely good these are at copping a faux upright tone, the only others I can think of that do that well are Fender 9050s and D'Addario Chromes. For all intents and purposes these are basically flatwounds in terms of their timbre but they can, if pushed, zing a bit like a roundwound. I'd be quicker to recommend them to flatwound fans than roundwound fans.

Not quite Brite Flats.....
Unlike the title and other reviews, these are not 100% flat.

They are close, but not quite.

The B and the E and A are, but not the D and G. ( I got the single B string )

The last three strings have some brightness.

Oh, and great customer service!

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."
