    For Immediate Release:

    Addressing the desire of modern bassists to utilize the entire range of the fretboard, GHS Strings introduces the Big Core Bass set, providing strings that continue to be articulate up to the 24th fret across all strings.

    A combination of stainless steel and nickel-iron wraps allows for a clear and articulate tone with solid fundamental bass note accuracy. With the addition of a tapered E string, the Big Core Bass set has a consistent sound from string to string, with outstanding performance past the fifth fret on up.

    Currently available exclusively in medium gauge (45-65-85-105), the core-to-cover ratio has been optimized for those musicians that may want to play in drop tunings, but not have to switch to a heavier gauge.

    Big Core Bass strings are manufactured in Battle Creek, MI to the exacting standards that the most demanding player has come to expect from GHS Strings, and has an MSRP of $47.66.

    Sorry for the delay. The response was so great, we have a 5 string set available in 45-65-85-105-130, where both the 105 and 130 are tapered.
