These are pure nickel strings that GHS puts through part of the flat wound smoothing process, which they call burnishing. I find they have the smooth feel of a flat wound with the bright, grindy tone of a roundwound. They wear out fast!

They're also great for parts with lots of fatiguing sliding about on E, A and D.
