GHS Strings Brightness Bar for Electric Bass Guitar Strings

GHS Strings Crossovers

Designed specifically for the NS Design NXT and CR Series of Electric Upright Basses, nickel-iron (Alloy 52) is wound over a round core and then ground smooth. This yields a string with a deep and focused fundamental tone, with plenty of nuance and character. The nickel-iron is highly magnetic, playing well with magnetic pickups as well as piezo, allowing you a mix of traditional and contemporary sounds.

Why Should You Play Crossovers?

  • You want a bass string as unique as your NS Design bass
  • You want your EUB to have a deep and focused fundamental tone
  • You need both traditional and contemporary sounds

PLEASE NOTE! These strings have a 46.5" winding length, suitable for the NXT and CR Series of Electric Upright Basses. They will NOT work on the Omni Bass.

I have a request on adding a High C String for the NS EUB because it would rock. I always use Long Scale Bass Strings on the Omni Bass cause well it's the same scale as a Bass Guitar.

Oscar Stern

Very cool but we need to add a High C for the 6 String NS Design Upright Bass Models because they're becoming more popular etc along w/ a Round Wound version of these strings. Since the Omni Bass scale length is the same as any Bass Guitar, standard Bass Guitar strings seem like a good match for it.

Oscar, at present we have no plans (nor received any requests) for a High C string for the NS EUBs. Nor have we received any requests for roundwound strings for these 42" scale instruments. I'm an NS artist myself, and have a great relationship with those folk, so if there was something coming, they'd let me know. 

The Omni can take any bass guitar strings that are 37.25" winding length. Anything longer and you run the risk of having the full diameter wrap around the tuning post, which can put undue stress on the string and possibly lead to breakage.
