I had the opportunity to try Galli and instantly became aware of something incredibly special. The quality, structure and performance of the nickel round wound, polly coated nickel round wound, jazz flat wound and black tape wound Galli Strings feel so good, they’re simply elegant to the touch. They sing out with delightful clarity and do so with impressive longevity of tone and tension. For all the reasons I’ve listed and the fact they produce 8 different varieties of bass strings (all available in a wide range of gauges) Galli has won me over.
