These strings are as "vintage" as you can get. Pure nickel wrap on a round tin-plated, high carbon steel core. Many players believe that round core strings feel easier to play with less tension and have a clearer tone. By design, round core strings must be handled carefully so that the outer winding does not come lose. On guitars that have an eye in the tuning post, it is important to install the string and tune to pitch before cutting the excess string off. On guitars where the tuning post has a hole down the center which require the string to be cut prior to placing the string down the post hole, it is important that to you first make a 90 degree bend before cutting the string. It best to make that 90 degree bend about two inches longer than the post where you will be installing the string. Once you have made the bend leave about one-half inch before cutting the string then place the bent section inside the tuning post and tune to pitch. Be aware that it takes longer for a round core strings to "settle" in and it requires many more tugs, but once installed and settled in, they are amazing.
These are my favorite! I have used round core strings for a long time but the switch to the pure nickel wrap on the wound strings was the final piece of the puzzle. They are very vocal sounding and responsive and have slightly less output which keeps the low end cleaner and better defined. Overall a better balanced sound than the nickel plated steel wraps I've been used to.
Great strings. have a very unique feel and tone
Love these strings! They feel super comfortable and flexible. Great tone and they last a good amount of time before requiring a change.
These are the best strings! The tone is great, but they way the strings feel under your fingers is what really sets these apart from other stings. The customer service is fantastic - very responsive!
Great feel and tone. Plus, they stay in tune!
Fantastic tone and feel. The guitar has never sounded better
These are perfect!
the best set of strings i have ever used.They feel and sound great.
Per a friends recommendation I ordered a set of the round core nickel strings for my single coil guitars and let me just say it has been a game changer. I have been using NYXL strings for the last 5-6 years professionally gigging and in studios and I can confidently say I will never go back. These round cores are like adding a compressor to your guitar. The tone and sustain is unreal!
Wow! The 10-46 set brought my Fender 60's CS Strat to life. Excellent feel, beautiful balanced ringing vintage tone. Outstanding.
