GHS is proud to release Balanced Nickel strings for bass, a combination of traditional string materials and modern string design. Wound over a round steel core with a pure nickel (nickel 205) final cover, Balanced Nickels have the same number of wraps from string to string. This yields a tone that is deep but focused, with an extremely even response, no matter where you are on the fretboard. The end result is a balance between tension, flexibility, tonality and playability.

Did you plan to add 6 strings sets ? 

Or a least a C strings ?

Thanks you so much for this incredible strings !

Hey Bertrand, there are no plans for a 6st set. It is far more likely that we'll introduce a C string single, but it may be a bit. Because the Balanced Nickels are such a different beast in terms of construction, we want to make sure that the C string - whenever it comes out - is as tonally close as we can get.
