These bass strings have a black polymer coat set over a Type 52 pure nickel alloy wrap.
This is designed to give rich mid-tones and offers an alternative to steels with high presence. The gauges available are 40, 60, 80 and 100, and 45, 65, 85 and 105. A single Low B (130) will also be available for five string bass players.
The Nexus Acoustic sets are clear polymer coated wound, gold series plain strings with a phosphor bronze base. This gives enriched highs and gentle mid-tones and comes in three gauges: 10s, 11s and 12s.
In the electric range new Nexus strings also have a black polymer coating over nickel alloy. This adds a lot of warmth compared to conventional nickel strings. There are two sets available here: 9s and 10s.
