Seems that the Dynacore set has the same tension as ej44c I find the 4th to saggy in that setime (in my 630mm spruce concierto).People say they're brighter than regular nylon , so I guess no luck for me in this option ....

anyway thanks the search goes on 😁
That’s what I do remember as well. If my memory serves me well, Dynacor was created as just a combination of Titanium trebles with composite basses, which was a much nicer match than plain EJ45 resp. EJ45C these days.

BTW EJ45T trebles with EJ45C basses was exactly the combination Masaki Sakurai recommended as medium tension strings for Kohno guitars for instance before Dynacore was created!

Composite basses feature a Zylex core, which d‘Addario uses for bowed instruments strings as well. They are brigther with a wider tonal spectrum as classic EJ45s and do have a slightly different tension pattern!

I Think i am going to check the individual bass strings sold by d'addario, will check if any other brand manufactures thick singles...
I saw they have a 0.48(instead of 0.47 for a 6th) nylon and a 0.31 (instead of 0.30 for a 4th) so that could be a tiny "power up" in the basses...

You could check the individual 10P basses of La Bella for 10 string guitars.
They go up to 0.056 if my memory serves me well and don’t cost a fortune! :wink:
