Pyramid 12-String Bass Strings

Pyramid strings are made in Germany. Pyramid does not make a 12-string bass set in their regular product line but Martin Hense had custom sets made up for his music store, Martin’s Musik-Kiste, located in Kaltenkirchen, Germany. In addition to the standard string set that has fundamental strings paired up with two strings one octave up, Martin also offers a set where the ‘E’ and ‘A’ strings are in three octaves!

These strings are available exclusively here: https://www.martinsmusikkiste.eu/saiten/bass/12-saiter/
