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, and are created by wrapping nickel-plated steel alloys around a core wire which is made from tin-plated high-carbon steel. It’s a classic recipe that works superbly for all styles of music
• Hex core shape lends to a great playing, punchy sounding string with real low end ‘snap’ on the bottom strings and singing highs on the top
• Legendary durability ensures consistently great sound and playability between string changes
• 100% handmade string using USA-made metals and wound in Cortez, Colorado USA
