OVERVIEW

The sweetest sounding, nickel wound strings ever made!

Gauges: .009, .011, .016, .024w, .032w, .042w

With a singing tone, harmonic balance, and lightning-fast playability, these strings allow you to capture every nuance of your playing style. So whether you're in the studio or on the stage you can count on Electro-Harmonix strings to deliver the clean, responsive sound you've always wanted. Breathe a new fire and power into your axe!

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC9 Nickel Wound Ultra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    Got these just sampling a few string sets and stuck them on my 2005 Tele Deluxe, they have a fairly decent tone & output compared to my Slinkies and seem to be good quality but my major complaint is the G B and E to me are under much more tension tuned at 440, kinda mixed feelings since some of my guitars are strung with 10's so for me these are 10 feeling 9's ! Strings are the easiest swap for tone chasers so just try a set, you just might like them

        I have strung many different brands of strings on my Strat but the Electro Harmonix strings blow all the Competition away in every department!
        I will never change back to any others I have tried! These strings put a brand new perspective on quality and I just finished insisting that our local music store stock these strings which they are now going to do.

        They will blow you away

        By Wakinglife

        from Brisbane, Australia

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC9 Nickel Wound Ultra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        I have always been a fan of electro harmonix so naturally the next step was to try their strings. I did expect a lot given my dealings with them in the past and they more than met my very expectations. They are amazing. They seem a lot lighter than what I am used too and they took a little longer to get them to stay in tune when I first put them on but once they settled in my god they blew me away. They are fuller and brighter than anything i have ever had. I used to use d'addario for electrics but they have nothing on these strings. Go try them.

        Best sounding strings period! Bright, tight sound and great durability. I first tried them back in 2002 and haven't gone back! Give them a try, you won't be let down!

        I've used GHS Boomers for years, but the EH strings are awesome!!! Brighter sounding than the Boomers, and they last a little longer too. They cost a little more, but I think it's worth it.

        The best strings I have ever used. They sound great, they're strong, why wouldn't you buy these? Electro-Harmonix made electric guitar strings as close to perfect as you can get it.

        excellent strings

        By sheaman-IwyTa

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix NIC9 Nickel Wound Ultra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

        i've used and loved electro-harmonix pedals for the longest time. i was looking for a new kind of strings. i've used d'addarios, ernie balls, gibsons, fenders, ghs, you name it. i found these strings when they came out (not too long ago), and knew i had to try them. i've never been happier with a pair of strings. these have great sound, great life, and they're very smooth. i would reccomend this these to anybody!
