9-42 Nickel Wound COATED


Length: 43 inches.

Nickel-Plated Steel wound strings were introduced in the late Sixties and have become the most popular alloy for electric guitars and bass. Nickel-plated steel tends to offer the most balanced tone. It took several years of trial and error to develop a proprietary string coating that resists tarnish and corrosion without compromising tonal quality.

    These strings are the best coated string I've ever used. They tune and intonate so nice and stay there. Easy playing, long life, I'm hooked. 9's on the Suhr Classic and 10's on the Duesenberg. Wish they were a little less $ but they are my only strings now.

    That's it totally above the rest of all the so called supposed previous Best of the coated Strings Before. Elixir, DR's, Dean Markley etc. Forget about it. you have found the best right here. You have to be patience with these strings give them time to stretch.. i mean really stretch out and settle in .. I thought i broke the high e string a couple of times but it was just stretching out and settling in.. I will not ever put anything else on my ESP MII other than these strings!! Sold on these.. Bar None!!
