Awesome strings!
December 20, 2019
These are the best kept secret ever.These strings look and sound like round wounds but they play like a flat.For a guy who plays classic country and country gospel I have to walk my bass a bunch. With these I have no rip on the strings.The life of these are a whole lot longer it is a win win for me. Thanks GHS crazy John

Four string set, plus a .28 pressurewound high C.
November 30, 2019
Four string set plus the .28 high C. Nothing super about them, but nothing out of the ordinary either. Tension seems fine, a bit on the high side so Iíve cranked the truss rod some to offset that and keep lower action. Iíve had the bass tuned to drop D and it wasnít too floppy or noisy/fret buzzy, right now itís back up to standard E - C. Finger noise and feel for these strings is a bit different from standard rounds - a bit less finger noise and also perhaps a bit less fret noise. Iím quite satisfied with this string and the pressurewound set overall.
ProsHigher tension good for fretting hand, fast plucking. Higher tension good for drop D tuning. Seems to be a bit less finger noise and fret buzz with these.
ConsNone yet.

Best strings for many styles, easy on the fret bars. Have strung them on my Lakland 55-02 and my Fender P-bass. Had been using DR Marcus Millers for 5 years and when I tried the GHS PWs I was amazed how consistent the tone and volume are anywhere I chose to play the neck. Permanent fan!

Best Bass Strings! Period!

I've been using these on my Precision for the last 5 years and I've gradually started using them on every bass I own. I used to be die-hard RotoSound and I decided to shop around and try these. After I tried them I was hooked.

I tried everything; this is the set for your Fender bass.

Worked in music stores for over 5 years in my early playing career and played professionally for over 10 years. Literally tried everything available over those years. These strings are the best I ever played. Excellent in the studio and great for gigs. Cuts out most of the zingy finger noise, but still has a nice bright tone along with big round lows. There is not a better bass string out there, past or present. Your search is over.

These were the first bass strings to completely satisfy me as a general player. They're smooth but fairly bright, and are wonderful for all styles of playing. Several years ago I sold a custom 5 string, then had a chance to play it again a couple years later, this after having wandered into the maze of trying several other brands and types of bass strings. I asked the guy, a jazz guitarist, what kind of strings he was using, because I was amazed at how well they played. His response was, "I don't know; whatever you had on there." Yep, they were Pressurewounds!! Most of my 4 & 5ers wear them proudly. VERY highly recommended!!!

I've been playing for 25 years.
These maybe my favorite strings.
Well balanced, smooth feel,
warm defined, tone, with a nice top end. Not to bright.
Last forever. A+.

3.5 stars. I expected more of a flatwound feel but they still feel like rounds and squeak when I play. I'll go back to DA Chromes or Fender flats. Great learning exp. though? Thanks. :) Sent from my LG phone

These strings are all around fantastic in playability, sonic spectrum, and feel, not too mention that they are easier on the frets, and not as noisy as roundwounds.
I highly recommend them, especially since they won't break the bank. ;-)

Almost perfect

Great sound, and better feel than round wounds. More squeak on the slide than I expected though. If they felt a touch more like flat wounds they would be my absolute favourite set of strings.

Very smooth and supple strings. Has a nice flatwound like thump but retains a brightness and clarity that most flats can't touch. Very even and balanced. Great choice for those who want a vintage sound but with good definition or fretless players who want a little more zing.

Using since 1985 on P and J stock basses. Great mid-punch for clarity on live gigs. Easy on the fingers and frets. Won't switch as long as they still make 'em.

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."
