Clarity, attack & rich, full spectrum harmonic content is SO important to me, and I've found GHS Super Steels give me all I need to sculpt whatever tone I desire. One thing I've learned in my playing and producing career; it's easier to carve an aural slice you may not want for a given piece out of your tone, but it's nearly impossible to add in with EQ when you want it and it's just not there. Start with 100% of your tonal potential."

Looking for piano-like tone and sustain? Choose Contact Core Super Steels.

Wound like a piano string, stainless steel wire is wrapped over a hex core, with an exposed section at the bridge section. This “exposed core” allows better contact, for a better transfer of sound vibration. The result is lower action, more definition, sustain, and vibrance with amazing intonation on the lower strings.

Unlock the full dynamic potential of your bass with Contact Core Super Steels!

Will these work for a short scale bass Gibson EB-0

Jonathan Moody

Hi Nathan, short answer is no. These strings are too long for your EB-0 to fit properly around the tuning posts.

I ran the Mark King signature set of piano style strings for years and only stopped using them because I couldn't get them in Australia any more. It would be helpful to know how long the exposed section is so we can tell which bridges they will work on.
