The Cobalt strings are wound with cobalt, instead of the standard nickel, which is a more conducive alloy. What does that mean? It means that cobalt has a  “stronger relationship” with the magnetic field that our pickups create. This gives us “an extended dynamic range, incredible harmonic response, increased low end, and crisp, clear highs.”
