These have been my favorite strings for a while now. I'm gonna try some different strings out and I've got several sets left that are brand new! These are the long+ which will fit a 34-36 inch scale bass according to GHS and are .45-.106 in diameter. These strings feel pretty balanced to me. 1 set shipped: $15.00 2 sets shipped: $25.00 3 sets shipped: $35.00 Considering one set is a little over $18.00 plus shipping, I feel this is a pretty good deal! GHS Blurb: GHS Bass Progressives Bass Strings will test your strength by using a "Filament Grade Alloy" core wire creating a unique tone. This alloy is used in automotive headlights. The GHS Progressives special core wire is magnetically activated and pulls the string tone through the bass pickups.
