Building on their highly successful bass string range, GHS Strings unveil the Round Core Bass Boomers and Crossovers.
Offering a full frequency sound with well-balanced, generous low mids and clear, soft high ends, the Round Core Bass Boomers provide a different harmonic content for all bass players. Their round core gives improved definition when played through an amp making them sing on the stage, in the studio or at rehearsal. Available in sets of four, five or six strings they are also slight longer than standard at 37.25 inches. These strings have been road tested by the GHS Artist Family including Mark Damon (The Pretty Reckless) and Aden Bubeck (Miranda Lambert’s band).
Another exciting addition to the range are the GHS Crossovers, designed specifically for the NS Design NXT and CR series of Electric Upright Basses. A nickel / iron alloy has been wound over a round core and then micro-ground to give the strings a deep and focused fundamental tone. Designed with direction and guidance from Mark Gollihur (Gollihur Music / Din Within), who found the new GHS Crossovers ‘cosied up nicely between the two NS electric options …. providing nice definition and some edge without being too ‘zingy’’. Session bassist, Bob Potsic added ‘ they have a deeper thump when played pizzicato, that is still tight with a clean attack…they sing beautifully’. Suitable for bowing, these new bass strings are available as four and five string sets.
