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

The COVID-19 pandemic has people understandably highly 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 temporarily 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 BSN930 string setThe BSN930 strings are made of steel, with a stranded steel "rope" core. This common winding pattern creates a string that is both durable and flexible, reducing the stiffness that comes with other types of core designs. The outer windings are made of a chromesteel that provides a clear, distinct tone without being overly "brassy." I'd consider them to be a great hybrid string for a player who needs to do many different styles; bluegrass jam on Wednesday, jazz on Friday nights, and orchestra rehearsal on Sundays? This might be a good option for you.

They have a very quick, clean bow response for those who lean heavily on arco, and their pizz is not as bright as some other ropewound options.

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.

Superflexible strings feature a multi-strand steel core with chrome-steel winding, which makes the feel of the strings, well... super-flexible. They have a hybrid sort of appeal, in that they are equally good for bowing and for pizz, and have a "middling" sort of tone and sustain that can be used in a variety of different genres without drawing unwanted attention to themselves for sounding out of place.
