The Modern Standard series currently comes in copper, brass, and stainless steel. Note that while the beads are sized to accommodate the Hardcore Gut System, the Modern Standard beads are sufficiently heavy on their own, and do not require the optional beads. . Despite the compatibility, the Modern Standard sets were designed to stand alone, and the beads are sufficiently heavy on their own to play very well. The individual Modern Standard bead weights are as follows:
- Modern Standard - Copper: 16.0g
- Modern Standard - Brass: 15.1g
- Modern Standard - Stainless: 14.1g
Titanium Modern Standard bead: 8.1g
Titanium End Cap: 5.1g
Total setup: 13.2g per end
Note that, if used correctly, the smooth polished look of these ain't gonna last.
