    Battle Creek, MI, 10th October 2017 – GHS is delighted to launch their new Balanced Nickels strings for bass guitars, a combination of traditional string materials and modern string design.

    Traditionally, bass strings are made by wrapping one cover wire around the core to create the G, two covers for the D and A, and three covers for the E string. GHS’ Balanced Nickels bass strings change all this: in these new sets, they manufacture the G and the E strings by wrapping two covers around the core, bringing a fresh symmetry to the sets. The result is an equilibrium between tonality, tension, flexibility and playability.

    Balanced Nickels are available in light and medium gauges for 4 and 5 string basses. Short Scale Balanced Nickels are also available.

    GHS’ Balanced Nickel bass strings offer balanced construction, tonality, tension, flexibility and playability – that’s what they mean when they say, ‘play with the best, play GHS!’

    This just makes sense. I'll definitely try a set or two.

    Too bad it seems they're not available in the EU. Even Thomann doesn't have them :(

    I’m heavily into the balanced tension thing, and like this a lot. I just don’t understand why GHS stopped the balancing at the E string. The low B is far too light with these sets. (About 10 lbs lighter tension IIRC) This just doesn’t make any sense to me.
