A fair compromise between brightness and playability
Andy55, 03.07.2019
I bought these strings to use on a Cort acoustic bass, on a quest to find something reasonably bright and loud when played acoustically, but without the annoying clatter usually associated with phosphor bronze strings.

GHS say these are “the first phosphor bronze bass string that does not have harsh and abrasive overtones and finger noise, just a smooth mid-focused sound.” I’d say that’s a pretty accurate description.

Played acoustically, once the zinginess of new strings has worn off after a day or two, they are not quite as bright as conventional phosphor bronze strings, but finger and fretting noise is much reduced, although by no means eliminated – they are nowhere near as forgiving of poor fretting hand technique as flats or tapewounds. I’ve previously been using Labella white nylon tapewound, which although pleasing tonally on the top two strings, gave a very muted output on the lower two strings. The GHS strings give a satisfyingly full-bodied sound here, with good string to string balance and excellent sustain.

That full bodied sound satisfies even more when played plugged in. Winding back the treble a little to reduce fingering noise still leaves sufficient overtones to give that characteristic phosphor bronze brightness together with a deep resonant bass.

Bottom line for me though is that, whilst I love the sound, having been using flats and tapewounds on all my basses for quite a while, I’ll have to brush up my technique before I’ll be happy using these strings in public!

A smooth touch for a bright sound
vegejo, 20.10.2019
I used this set on my acoustic Cort bass , I was looking a bronze set of strings but without the rush feeling of it (without getting slipery like an elixir)

I like the feeling of the string and the brightness of it, the strings looks well manufactured, and if its like my other GHS it will have a decent life ... will see.

It's my best acoustic strings for the moment, the price is I feel a little bit too much though but we have the habits us bass player.

Nicht gefunden was ich suchte
Tommy33, 22.10.2020
Auf Akustikbass Guild; Mensur medium; Stimmung D#...
Originalsaiten: Daddario EPBB170

Die Originalen waren mir etwas zu metallisch und bin auf diese interessante Variante gestoßen. Leider ist der Sound nicht das was ich suchte und das ist natürlich je nach Geschmack unterschiedlich.

Die Stärke der tiefen E-Saite ist für meine Konfiguration grenzwertig. Eher schlabbrig wegen der Mensur und zudem halb Ton runtergestimmt, es geht gerade so. Der Slap macht sich im Gegenzug leichter, da klingen sie nach meinem Empfinden richtig gut.

Der Saitensatz ist akustisch gut ausgeglichen, in Ton und Dynamik. Über den Tonabnehmer klingt das ganze dann aber eher bescheiden, die E Saite weicht von den restlichen von der Eigenschaft komplett ab und keine Dynamic im Saitensatz.

Negativ empfinde ich das Spielgefühl, wo ich eigentlich dachte dass die Stärke dieser Saiten liegt. Beim Slide habe ich das Gefühl hängen zu bleiben und die Haut an den Fingern tu mir nach einer Stunde einspielen auch leicht Weh. Wenn man dann mal rutscht geht es schon dahin, aber das ist für mich nicht so das wahre.

Wieder die Daddario Saiten drauf, eine andere Welt! Meine Suche geht weiter...

Warum nicht schon früher
Jingo, 01.05.2019
dachte ich mir, als ich die Saiten auf meinem Sandberg Basic anspielte.
Lange war ich auf der Suche nach den richtigen Saiten, aber entweder klangen sie zu harsch und zingi (Roundwounds) oder zu matt (Flatwounds).
Mit diesen Saiten klingt mein Sandberg jetzt perfekt.
Die Bespielbarkeit ist traumhaft, die Finger gleiten über das Griffbrett, ohne ausgebremst zu werden und fast ohne Störgeräusche und sie klingen sehr modern mit crispen aber ohne überspitzte Höhen.
Nebenbei passen die Saiten sehr gut zur goldenen Hardware meines Sandbergs.
Der Klang liegt im Bereicht der Rotosound Swing Bass Saiten.
Also gleich einen 2. Satz auf meinen Thunderbird aufgezogen und auch hier lag ich genau richtig.
Am meisten begeistert mich aber die Haptik der Saiten, d.h. nicht so glatt, wie herkömmlichte 'Flats und nicht so rauh, wie Rounds.
Die Saitenspannung von 42-95 schreckte mich immer ab, allerdings hängen die Saiten alles andere als labbrig am Bass und man kann auch schon mal fester reingreifen.
Ich bin sehr begeistert von diesen Saiten und werde sie in Zukunft bestimmt öfter kaufen.
Also Leute, traut euch, probiert sie aus !
