IMPORTANT NEWS: We are here! You can order with confidence.

The COVID-19 pandemic has people understandably concerned. With abundant cautionary procedures, the bassists at Gollihur Music are still maintaining our normal (online) business hours and shipping out orders every weekday.

Since we are not a "bricks and mortar" store, we are not affected by mandatory retail closures. There are just two of us here at the shop, and we have put a halt to in-person appointments to limit any chance of exposure. We are taking appropriate measures to protect ourselves and our customers from any possible infection. We're confident that we can continue to provide you with your bass needs through this complex time.

Do note that some of our suppliers have been suspending or limiting operations, though, so some products may be a little less available. But we are well stocked with the bass-ics!

Gallistrings may be a newcomer to our shores, but they've been established as a string-maker since 1890. Based in Italy, they were long known for natural gut strings. They now offer three string sets of varying construction; a traditional rope-core (steel) string, a synthetic core with a chromesteel outer winding, and a full synthetic option.

Gallistrings BSN900 string setThe BSN900 strings use a synthetic core, for a more gut-like timbre, but with a chromesteel winding, which provides a sustain characteristic more akin to steel strings. So it's sort of a "modern" take on a gut vibe.

The feel of these strings is pleasantly flexible, without feeling floppy. They are a bit "pingy" when first installed, but that twang goes away after an hour or so of play. I also don't suggest putting these on the same day you have a gig, as they also take a day or so to stabilize and stay in pitch. But that's quite common for a synthetic string - the synthetic blend has to "stretch" to reach its optimum tension holding.

The strings have a punchy pizz tone, with a clear pitch to the attack, and they bow surprisingly well, with a rich sound and very easy playability.

Note: Because the strings are ordered directly from Italy and can take a while to fulfill, we currently only sell these strings in full sets.
