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.

Superb strings
15 December 2023  | 

These bass strings produce a very good tone. They are very balanced across all strings and are in between roundwounds and flatwounds. They are slightly rough, but this could be fixed by using a sanding fleece. I put them on a Pre-Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray.

100% recommend, very good value for money.

Play really nicely

I used to use groundwounds years ago, but they got to be a little too expensive. These ones are much more affordable and play really nicely.

Very nice groundwounds!!

Just arrived. They sound really nice! Feel smooth but a tad sticky on my fingers where they are new... just oiling them and playing them in now. I recommend!

Well pleased!

Smooth like flats, but a really good sound like roundwound, well pleased!

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

Quality item

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.
