Apparently, "pure nickel" wound strings are another way to make a tele sound smoother.
I just put em on my last Tele build and I think they sound great. I'm using EMG T system pickups. I may never go back. A bit pricey though.
Looks great, how about bending?
they're not slinky, but they bend some.
I’ve never noticed a problem bending. But I don’t use a wound G anymore either.
My first electric had flat wounds. It was the standard.
I have Thomastik Swing flats (10-44) on three of my six Teles/Esquires. I like them much more than those D'Addarios, but I've used those too. Love the feel, love the sound. I'm not playing multi-string pedal steel licks or anything, but I don't have any trouble bending as needed...
I use that exact set on my LP
I like TI jazz flat 10's
Cousin Kenny on flatwounds.
I like Rotosound Top Tapes on both my Tele and Strat
