String Length: 43 inches
Pure Nickel wound strings were used exclusively on most guitars built in Fiftys and most of the Sixtys. Pure Nickel has a slightly warmer tone than nickel-plated steel and is preferred by many blues artists.
Pure Nickel Wound strings are created by wrapping Pure Nickel alloys around a hex-shaped core wire which is made from tin-plated high-carbon steel (same as plain strings, but hex-shaped).
These strings feel great and sound very warm on my semi-hollow guitar. 11-52 is the ideal gauge for my Gibson es-335.
I bought a set to test out on a Les Paul and am very pleased. I get great sound out of these. Better than expected. Highly recommend this product.
These sound great on my Strat, very nice balance!
