True Mediums
March 16, 2013
What no one seems to mention about these strings is the better fingerstyle playability. The difference between Mediums and True Mediums is that a couple of strings have the gauges reduced slightly so all six have about the same tension when tuned to concert pitch. This means they all 'fight back' with similar resistance when picked. They immediately improved my flow of notes and balanced my dynamics when I tried them. Now, these are all I use on all my Martin 000 & OM guitars.

I play a lot of fingerstyle in DADGAD on my Breedlove. This set of strings really brings out the true tonal voice of the guitar.

GHS ''True Med'' Phosphor Bronze Strings
June 11, 2010
I tried these because they were what was recommended by the manufacturer for my new Republic Tricone Resophonic. Inasmuch as I've had many vintage National, and Regal Resos, but this is my first Tricone I didn't have much basis for comparison. I wasn't very impressed however. I also got a couple of light gauge sets for my other guitars, because I heard from someone I trust that they were very good. I am a lifelong loyal D'Addario user. (I knew John D'Addario). I tried the GHS light gauge phosphor bronze set on my Martin, and immediately replaced them with D'Addarios! Some people may like GHS acoustic phosphor bronze, but I won't use them again!

I play a lot of fingerstyle and need to have medium gauge unwounds for the fat tone. The big low E also beefs things up. Of course these are a must have for people who are tuning down a lot...the mediums keep a nice tension on lower tunings.

Great sounding strings!

The phosphor I like to use for straight out acoustic work -- they sound fantastic. They do break easy as I use a lot of different tunings.

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."
