The legacy of famed guitar deity Jimi Hendrix is not to be taken lightly. And when it comes to getting involved in a Hendrix guitar-related project, one better know what one is doing.
After extensive research, company president Dean Markley and his staff were able to determine with some certainty that Hendrix played different types of guitar strings at different points in his career. Using the knowledge gained from their research, the engineers at Dean Markley Strings have developed two types of Jimi Hendrix strings, both of which deliver the string qualities the guitarist would look for were he playing today.
These Jimi Hendrix Pure Nickel strings reflect the type of string used by Hendrix later in his career.

These REALLY changed the sound on my 62 reissue Strat and my little Crate V58from my usual Super Slinky set. I nailed the end of Jimi's Monterey Pop performance of Killing Floor right after I strung up and plugged in. A hard pick digging in or a softer sweep and anything in between sounds more like Hendrix than my old strings and the usual line of vintage effects - surprising to say the least. They are "springy" and sound sorta terrible acoustically, which of course isn't much of an issue with an electric guitar. Very "springy" flexible feel too; if you want to go from 09's to 10's the transition should be easy. Good volume output even with nickle and light gauge. The least expensive and best experiment I've tried in a LONG time, you should try 'em too!
