Horrible sounding strings.
TrEr, 25.07.2020
I honestly can't understand why anyone would like these strings. They sound kinda like flats but with the hollow, mids of rounds. The worst of both worlds. Clanky yet dull. Very lifeless. They're also very stiff and uncomfortable and the ball ends are bigger than most strings so they won't fit all types of bridges.

Build quality seems good so I'm sure they will last a very long time. Except that the probably won't because they will end up in the garbage bin pretty fast.

I knew before I got them that opinions are extremely divided on these strings but I couldn't really know without trying them myself could I? As it turns out I'm very much in the NAY camp.

Not recommended.

Works well on SG bass
John3168, 14.10.2014
When fitted to my SG Bass copy, they gave me an authentic 60s tone, deep and but without as much top end to the notes- easily remedied if you use a pick instead of fingers. A drawback was that the heavy gauge meant that the low E string needed a bit of work to fit into the bridge slot. A heavier gauge string also means that the usual tension of the strings is increased, so bending the strings slightly is harder - string bends on bass may not be to everyone's taste but try a slight bend on blues numbers, it sounds good! I'd not tried GHS before but they are less cost than other brands - Hofner say- and the quality is there.

Cheap but great
SimonDK, 17.09.2020
I put these strings on a short scale P-bass to get a sound closer to a 'beatles'-bass and it works pretty good.
The strings sound great and feel pretty good.
The only minus is that they are bit sticky and takes a lot of playing before the stickiness is gone.

Fantastic strings
09.09.2015
Was really surprised by these strings. First of all there more of a half wound than a full flatwound in feel.
The tension is really good unlike other shortscale strings not flabby but not too much tension.
The tone is very nice between a flat and a roundwound. And will get more mellow with age i think.
I also like the pelham blue silk so would suit say a pelham blue epiphone or gibson.
I will say that the gauge is slightly unusual and the nut did need slight attention to get them to fit correct and at the bridge it was a tight fit thankfully the don't have any silk at the ball end, this helps.
These are a very good price and in my view is just as good as other more expensive strings.
