Description Virtually the same as GHS Nickel Rockers but with a wound third string. These strings provide the same full, warm tones. Very flexible and smooth feeling. Blues/Rock strat.

Overall Rating:
After playing many brands and types of strings I am going to stick with these. I like the tone, feel, and quality. I like heavier gauges too and a wound third string. These a little lighter bottom (26-50) end but nice heavy higher strings. Its the balance I like.
Price: $6.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Juststrings.com
Features:
Gauges are 011-013-n18-n26-n38-n50. Made of pure nickel. The semiflat wrap gives them an incredibly smooth feel.
Sound Quality:
I play blues and rock on a stratocaster through a Fender Twin Reverb and a tube screamer. These strings have a fuller, throatier tone than steel ones I've played (Slinky, and D'addario). They still retain a nice punch though and aren't "mellow". Bends and pitch control are way easy as the nickel is much softer than steel.
Durability:
They seem to last longer than others I've played. They probably lose the new sounds after 10-15 hours of playing. They hold tune very well throughout their lifespan. I change them about once a month.
