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.
Nickel Wound strings are created by wrapping Nickel-Plated Steel alloys around a hex-shaped core wire which is made from tin-plated high-carbon steel (same as plain strings, but hex-shaped). The “core-to-wrap” ratio is the combined diameters of the core wire and the wrap wire which creates the overall diameter of the string.
Great sound, as always, and this gauge selection is perfection on my new Gretsch 12, adapting well to tuning alterations without letting the bottom go limp.
I haven't had to re-tune my guitar at all! Plus, they sound terrific!
I Love the Sound of these Strings My Taylor TZ5 12 never sounded so good!
These fine strings make my Dean Boca sing like a choir of angels. Highly recommended!
Time will be the ultimate judge, but so far these strings sound great on my 12-string. They tuned up easily and the intonation is spot-on.
