GHS Bass Balanced Nickels

GHS is proud to release Balanced Nickel strings for bass, a combination of traditional string materials and modern string design. Wound over a round steel core with a pure nickel final cover, Balanced Nickels have the same number of wraps from string to string. This yields a tone that is deep but focused, with an extremely even response, no matter where you are on the fretboard. The end result is a balance between tension, flexibility, tonality and playability.

Balanced Nickels - Universal Long Scale (37.25" Winding Length)

Makes my Dan Armstrong fretless enjoyable to play

John Rawson on 30th Oct 2017

I've owned two Dan Armstrong fretless bases. They both had the tendency to favor the E and A strings, leaving the D and G strings with much less volume. I had Kent Armstrong (Dan Armstrong's son) make a new pickup in an attempt to correct the balance issue. It turned out better but did not have the richness of the original 'Deep Bass' pickup. After reading about the new GHS Balanced Nickle strings on 'NoTreble.Com', I ordered a set. When they came in the mail, I re-installed the original pickup and put on the new short-scale strings and it made a huge difference! Thank you GHS!
