Cobalt strings

Post by Tube_Fan »

I never tried them. I guess I'll have to get a set.

Cobalt provides a stronger magnetic relationship between pickups and strings than any other alloy previously available.

EB should use a scientist to edit their promo blurbs Cobalt itself is not an alloy (it's an element), so the use of "other alloy" is a non sequitur. A more accurate wording would probably be, "Our proprietary cobalt-containing alloy provides a stronger magnetic relationship between pickups and strings than that with any other alloy previously available." (with the "than that with" making the comparison elements of equal rank).

I'd actually like to see the data supporting that claim! :twisted: 8)
