Welcome to KALIUM Strings

Greetings! And welcome to the new Kalium Strings store!

As a lot of you know, we had to transition to this new site premature of its completeion.  We are still working our butts off to get it completed, but we thought we would give a little info on the new site.

MATERIALS - We now manufacture our bass strings in 2 different materials, our original hybrid steel/nickle, and our new stainless steels.  To see a review and comparison of the strings check out this awesome video from long time Kalim Strings customer Kirk Harris - Our Guitar strings are only currently available in our hybrid nickle. 

SCALELENGTHS - We offer 3 different sclae lengths of Bass String (soon 4 - adding short scale for 30" to 32" scale basses) and 3 different scale lengths of guitar string (again soon to be 4 when we introduce our extra long strings)

TENSIONS - Balanced, Traditional, Drop Tune, Multi Scale, and Multi Course are just the basics!

With that said, we know some of our old customers are having a hard time finding the products the used and loved so much , this is due to a SKU change.  The change was necessary to accomdate new materials, tensions, and scale lengths.  Here is how the new SKU works:

[Instrument] [Material] - [Gauge of lowest String] - [String Count] [Tension] [Scale Length]

Example - you are looking for a 6 string set of bass strings, our hybrid line, and your low B is a 130 and you play a standard csale (34" to 35") bass.

/ B = Bass
|      / H = Hybrid
|      |       / 130 = gauge of lowest string
|      |       |        / 6 = 6 string
|      |       |        |   / B = Balanced
|      |       |        |   |   / S = Standard Scale
|      |       |        |   |   |

Our Guitar string SKU's are a bit different, since they contain the lowest and highest string as well as are only made in one material - here is the Guitar SKU:

[Instrument] [Stroung Count] [Material] - [Guage of highest string] - [Guage of lowest String] - [Top side tension]

/ G = Guitar
|     / 6 = 6 String 
|     |   / H = Hybrid
|     |   |        / 095 = .0095 highest string
|     |   |        |            / 47 = .047 lowest string 
|     |   |        |            |         / XT = Extra Light Top - this will be empty on standard balanced sets
|     |   |        |            |         |
