Kind to your Frets, Easy on the Fingers

A special roundwound string with a multi-layered wrap wire micro-ground to a precise gauge and smoothness.

Elites Groundwounds (aka "Halfrounds") are made by grinding half of the outer windings of roundwound strings into a flat surface, creating a string with some tonal characteristics of Flatwounds but with the flexibility of roundwound bass strings - perfect for a bass player who wants a brighter sounding flat string.

Available in matched gauge 4 and 5 string sets

Super-versatile, Elites Groundwounds are equally well-suited for any styles of music - Great for fretless and fretted instruments, they reduce wear on the fingerboard and frets yet still deliver a bright, upfront sound with less finger-noise and string-click.

Great strings

These strings are my favourite but it's such a pity they don't make a set for short medium scale bass guitars

I love these strings

I love these strings, much brighter than flats and still so smooth. So pleased, thanks. Ant

Great strings allow for a vintage tone with a modern feel. A quality item and the included cloth was welcome too. Thank you.

Excellent feel. .45 a bit zingy but just dropped pickup on that side a bit and spot on.

Best strings I have ever tried!

These strings are the best strings I have had. They have the feel And durability of flat wounds but they still keep some brightness like round wounds. They are the perfect combination of the two!

All Good

I am very happy with the feel and tone of these strings. I was looking for less wear and tear on my fingers and these fit the bill. I was also very happy with the service provided by The Bass Centre. Good communication. Speedy delivery and it was a nice touch receiving the cleaning cloth with my order. Recommended and will return.

Excellent strings at the price

Very comfortable strings to play and quick to stabilise. I'm using these strings for the first time... sure, groundwound strings are a bit of a trade off - less string squeak but less 'zing' too. If you want the classic roundwound brilliance, look elsewhere... but if you want the comfort of tapewound strings with a bit more 'open-ness' and articulation at a sensible price then look no further. These strings fit the bill perfectly. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
