GHS ropes for open G - 5 stars
Laurent A. 565, 24.06.2013
I put these strings on a Höfner resonator guitar. Open G tuning. After 40 hours of play, I can say that these strings are perfectly tuned and a brilliant and crystalline sound. Still no corrosion. The sound is irreproachable in slide and very good in conventional game (Romeo & Juliet for example). Picks or not it sounds in all conditions. The diameter of this game is ideal for this type of tuning and guitar. In short, happiness. To buy (and play) with your eyes closed.

Good for resonator guitars
Robert aus T., 28.01.2019
I came to these strings after retrofitting my National Resophonic with a humbucker for acceptance. There had to be nickel strings now and I did not find anything at my favorite manufacturer Daddario. I am very satisfied with the GHS strings. The feel is good and the sound is exactly what I want. I only play the Reso with a brass bottelneck and that's exactly what the GHS fits. Clear Buy recommendation!

"Delta" sound strings for Double with magnetic pickup. To slide.
Jörg7309, 24.08.2015
I purchased a double electrified Airline B-Stock on Thomann and by courtesy I was able to choose a set of strings, since the ones I had were phosphor / bronze 0.12 and not fit for the slide.
On my resonator guitars I use 0.16 phosphor / bronze strings. They give a round sound, both warm and bright. But in the Airline with humbucker pickup on the mast they sound much better nickel strings, having better magnetic qualities. And the GHS 1600 have met my expectations and I like the "semi-flat" finish. As for durability I can say little. But I trust they will last a lot longer than bronze ones.
For those looking for strings with "delta" sound that behave well on a double / resonant guitar with magnetic pickup, try these without a doubt.
And thanks to Thomann for the detail and the very fast shipping (as usual)

very good !
21.12.2016
mounted on a dobro 60 d resonator flat handle, so I must say that it sounds. it's semi nickel (the strings) ....... quite soft, but powerful, if you want. always fair and accurate. it does not sound metallic grinsillar ..
There is some flatness in the winding of the strings (jazz way) so the bar slips well, that's why these strings are for a squareneck ....
Of course, some will take a more aggressive answer and swing in a blue grass group (it may also be a good choice) but personal, and especially for the studio I prefer
the set 1600.
