Search no further for superb bass tone

By George Bassman

from Undisclosed

Comments about GHS 5-5M-DYB 5-string Bass Strings with Low-B:

Trying out bass strings in search of that "perfect sound" is an expensive proposition. If you play a 34" scale five string you need search no more. As a recording and performing bassist the GHS 5-5M-DYB 5-string Bass Strings with Low-B is my choice of string for my two pre-Gibson Tobias basses, as it would be for my 35" scale basses if they made this in a long scale version, which they don't - yet. While nickel plated strings are often used to reduce fret wear, they are a warmer sounding string, and these have just the right blend of punch, brightness and low-end warmth. Most important they emphasize that primary tone that helps the bass lay solidly in the track without an inordinate amount of gain. The band sounds better when the bass sounds best. I have bought most of the strings on the market over the years and along with tone monster Jimmy Johnson, these are my go-to strings! I would give them a "10" if they made a long scale string... if GHS is reading, please add this to your line up.

First choice for tone

By George Bassman

from Undisclosed

Comments about GHS 5-5M-DYB 5-string Bass Strings with Low-B:

The GHS DVB 5M has superb tone. It's sound is well defined, tight and strong on mids and low-mids. Jimmy Johnson uses these strings - enough said about tone! Tone is subjective - if you are looking for a slapping string with accentuated highs I'd suggest looking elsewhere. But for tight and defined bass tone you can't beat this string. are my first choice for 34" five string. I use these on two pre-Gibson Tobias basses and even squeeze them on to my 4 string Musicman (though they are just barely long enough on a 34" in through body string). I wish they made a 35" string.

used them once

By Jason Atkins

from Brooklyn NYC and Boston MA

Comments about GHS 5-5M-DYB 5-string Bass Strings with Low-B:

They were actually my first set of new strings...ever. I changed them after 5 months of using the factory strings...so this review will be biased. But they were amazingly rich, lows that were capable of being warm or punchy, the highs didn't sound too special, but they sounded great when popped. I play a Ibanez sr485bm 5, through a gk1001rb through an ashdown abm410. having played 2 other sets of strings after this set, I can say that these are what I prefer.
