GHS Strings Introduce Coated Bajo Quinto Strings
The Mexican Bajo Quinto looks like an oversized acoustic guitar: it’s five pairs of double steel strings are played with a pick, with the emphasis on the bass strings. Often paired with the accordion in Tex-Mex, Conjunto and Norteño music styles, the instrument is currently enjoying a revival and GHS is one of the few companies offering strings for the bajo. The black coated Bajo Quinto, ‘Cuerdas Negras’ are being introduced as a direct result of the high demand from players for colored strings. Bajo players like the way the coated strings feel and how they catch the eye when played.
The GHS Bajo Quinto "Cuerdas Negras" black coated stainless steel strings are manufactured in a strict quality control environment to provide exceptionally long life and tone. They are made with Loop Ends with Lock Twist to give the best possible tuning and tension. Like the Stainless Steel Bajo Quinto string they have a heavy core wire which provides strength and volume. This combined with the professional gauging gives excellent bright tonal qualities. The set comes with the following gauges 024/024 036/036 046/046 062/30 078/036. Plus, a sixth pair is available to purchase for Bajo Sexto players in 46/92 gauges.
For tone, clarity, playability, longevity and looks there is nothing better than the GHS Bajo Quinto, ‘Cuerdas Negras’. To find out more about these and other bajo strings (GHS Stainless Steel Bajo Quinto, Phosphor Bronze Bajo Quinto) please go to http://www.ghsstrings.com.
