World renowned Innovation stand-up bass strings, which have until recently been manufactured in the UK, have found a new home with GHS Strings in the USA. The specialist machinery, unique non-metallic cores and original winding materials have been combined with our experienced workforce using the original hand spun manufacturing specifications to seamlessly reproduce traditional Innovation Bass Strings.
GHS will now add Innovation strings to its line up as both manufacturer and worldwide distributor of the Innovation brand of strings for stand-up bass that includes orchestral, jazz, bluegrass and rock-a-billy. GHS has a proud lineage dating back to 1964, over the years producing a huge number of various products for bass guitar, acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele, banjo, dulcimer, bajo sexto, and much more.
“As one of the largest producers of music string products in the world, we anticipate that our lengthy background in manufacturing strings, combined with the Innovation traditions will guarantee that Innovation will continue to be a unique offering in stand-up bass strings,” remarked GHS President Russ McFee.
The Innovation products will be available through GHS and its distributor and retailer base as GHS implements full manufacturing production in Battle Creek, Michigan.

Those of you who have been around from the 1960's through the 1990's will remember the vibrant live music scene in almost every starred hotel in India. Those were the days when you walked into a nightclub like 'Rendezvous' at The Taj Mahal hotel and 'Supper Club' at the Oberoi Sheraton in Mumbai to see curtains going up on a band that was the prime focus of these outlets. Every seat in these restaurants allowed an unobstructed view of the band that performed every night on resident contracts. Today all this has disappeared thanks to some ridiculously high entertainment taxes on live music. Today, non off these hotels have complete bands playing save for a few that feature small duos or solo singers. The Lodhi in New Delhi, recently listed among the world's best hotels, decided to step in and rewind to the good old days. They got Goa's premier jazz quartet 'Jazz Junction' to move to Delhi on a resident contract and the decision has paid off in terms of footfalls generated by the band. Jazz Junction featuring singer Daniella Rodrigues, pianist Tony Dias,
bassist Colin D'Cruz and drummer Angelo Colasco began playing at The Lodhi in June 2018. Four months into the contract the band generated a sizeable following, with quite a few high profile guests choosing to celebrate their special occasion at the Elan bar where the band performs. Against all odds the rewind option proved to be a huge success and hopefully other properties around the country takes the cue to trigger a whole new revival of live music.
