Pure nickel wrap...does that mean a steel core?
Only for the wound strings.
I bought some recently out of curiosity after reading about them on some tone blog. Still in the drawer but earmarked for my LP very soon.
All strings have a steel core. The only difference is if the wound strings have a solid nickel winding or a nickel plated steel winding.
I like them. I don't always use them. They're great for taming a bright guitar.
I haven't heard of those but I do out Super Slinky 9s on all my guitars
I used to use them on my strats.
Just because. No real reason. They are not that much different to my ears.
I have been using Ernie Ball purple slinky's (eleven's) for years on all my electrics and am well satisfied.
I love the Classic Rock strings. They are more mellow than Slinkys, easier to bend, and are more like I remember strings from back in the 70s.
I've never heard of them. Are they soaked in beer and do they stink of cigarettes and easy women?
Yes! Never heard of them? Sounds like you're on the product development team.
I’ve been using the .010” set on my ‘52 RI for the past year and have liked them. Planning on trying them on my Strat in the near future.
All I play on my strats and tele! 10-46
I use the Hybrids.
Use the 11 Power Slinkys on my Gretsch.
They are very good for taming the highs, but i think Regular Slinkies
are a warm string, with a tad of brightness. Perfect for single coils.
Love 'em; there's a small shop near me that sells them, and I go out of my way to pick them up whenever possible. They have a softer feel than to me, and sort of a spongier, more compressed sound. DR Pure Blues are similar, but I've had several packs of those with QC issues, unfortunately, whereas the Ernie Balls are utterly consistent and cheap.
I love polly webs. Thr rubber like coating last for years. And change strings less. The coating do not come off when I play them either.
Yes, I'm a fan/user of the Ernie Ball Classic Rock n Roll Strings. 11-48
They have a great full, fat, warm balanced tone.
I like them way better than D Addario. I find D Adarrio to have this weird mid-range krang sound or something that's too aggressive for me.
I love flatwounds too, but the EB Pure Nickel seems to be a nice in-between flatwound and roundwound.
I also like GHS Boomers, but what do I know
How do they compare to the Fender 250s?
