Great quality feel and sound!
willdefear, 13.12.2017
The is the first time I have used GHS strings as they are uncommon in the U.K. and I was very pleasantly surprised.

Firstly GHS seem to be the only string company that offer a 'heavy' option for BEAD tuning. I changed from using Earnie Ball 135-50 5-string sets without the G string, and the difference is black and white! The GHS 140-70's feel much more balanced for BEAD tuning, unsurprisingly, but the tension of this heavy set is much more suitable for the low tuning.

The sound is what did it for me the most! So much more low and mid range, and not too much raspy, noisy top end compared with the earlier balls. They pack a punch and sound great played with a pick too!

On the downside, it did not only require adjustment of the truss rod to compensate for the tension change, as well as a full set up to get everything back in balance, but I also had to file the nut quite a lot (even from using 135-70 strings) and had to file my bridge somewhat to fit the strings in - I guess I'm using these strings from now on!! I'm happy with that commitment.

I fully recommend these strings for anyone wanting to play in BEAD tuning whilst keeping with a 4-string bass. If you are not willing to modify your nut and potentially bridge then stick with standard tuning!

Ordentliche und DICKE Saiten für ordentlich Gewitter mit HEAD gestimmten Viersaitern
no-name, 06.08.2018
Seit einigen Jahren habe ich das Glück mit zwei hervorragenden Gitarristen zusammen spielen zu dürfen, die den ihnen zugänglichen Bereich an Tönen bestens bedienen. Ein ganz tiefes C oder D ist aber ein Feature, das nur vom Bass kommen kann. Deshalb bin ich dazu übergegangen meine Viersaiter HEAD zu stimmen.

Zunächst war ich vorsichtig mit eher dünnen Fünfsaiter-Sätzen, habe G-Saiten ohne Ende rumfahren gehabt, und schnell gemerkt, um so dicker die Saiten, um so mehr Druck und Tiefen. Also nach dickeren Sätzen gesucht, und irgendwann diesen entdeckt, der so ziemlich die dicksten Saiten mitbringt, die ich bisher gefunden hatte.
Wer HEAD Tunig will, ist ja höchstwahrscheinlich im Metal-Sektor unterwegs, und dann benötigt man Donner, Druck und Aggression, und dafür sind dickere Saiten meiner Erfahrung nach geeigneter. Dieser Satz bietet das von den mir bekannten am besten, ist bezahlbar, und mittlerweilen auf mehreren meiner Bässe und auch schon einige Male ausgetauscht \m/

Ottime corde, ma richiedono modifiche allo strumento
Guzz, 12.11.2018
Montate su un basso Mayones Jabba (prima serie, scala 34.25'', pickups Seymour Duncan SBJ-3, passivo).
Provate esclusivamente con l'accordatura per cui sono pensate, ovvero B-E-A-D, ben bilanciate, suonano in modo eccezionale. La corda del Si dà molta soddisfazione, nonostante possa risultare troppo impastata dopo il 15-esimo taso.

Per chi passa da E-A-D-G standard a B-E-A-D.
Ponte: La corda più grave è più spessa vicino al tondino finale. In questo punto passa da un diametro di circa 3mm a uno di 3.5mm, il che è sufficiente per non far infilare la parte finale della corda nella maggior parte dei ponti. Nel mio caso ho dovuto trapanare/limare il foro del ponte per allargarlo quel filo che bastava.
Manico: Non ho riscontrato nessun problema al manico dovuto al cambio di corde, anche perché la tensione complessiva non sembra molto diversa da quella dell'accordatura standard E-A-D-G con le corde 50-115.
Action: Con un ponte "classico" la corda del Si non permette di avere un'action alta, a causa dell'angolo di contatto. Si riesce comunque a non farla friggere.
Intonazione: Nel mio caso ho dovuto spostare tutto il ponte di mezzo centimetro più distante dal manico per riuscire ad intonare il Si.

*Strings 2-D.70/3-A.85/4-E.105/5-B.140 37.25'' winding

GHS toujours au top.
Cédric M, 27.03.2020
J'ai installé ces cordes sur ma Vintage V4 Icon, je fais des remplacements à la basse avec différents groupes et j'avais besoin d'être accordé en Si car je ne possède pas de 5 cordes.

Je les trouve vraiment excellentes, ce tirant est top pour jouer au médiator, l'attaque est puissante.

Je les recommande pour tous ceux qui veulent le son d'une 5 cordes tout en restant sur 4 cordes.
