I heard about these strings having great tone! Well, i didn't even get to find out how they really sounded. First of all, from the box, the G string was completely corroded and rusted. Next, as i was stringing the others on, the E and B string popped off before i could even get them close to being in tune. I don't know how they play. This is because i couldn't even get them on.

          I love my strats and tele. I've tried several brands but I think these are the best bang for the buck. It's all preference, but I love the sound and feel of pure nickel. I've tried using "plated" strings by Fender and other companies, but I always come back to these strings.

          Comments about Fender 150R Original Pure Nickel Electric Strings -:

          I started out over 40 years ago with pure nickle have gone full circle. I own several guitars and have used many brands over the years. I still like E.B. and D'addario.

          I found best tone and tension [bending ability] best on the Fender and less finger noise. Have switched back and they are still priced very affordable for anyone. Thank you MF and Fender. I switch between two Strats and a Tele' also through Fender TUBE amps.

          Comments about Fender 150R Original Pure Nickel Electric Strings -:

          I really like these strings. They are warm, and give what I believe to be the best tone on my Stratocaster's and Telecaster.
          I don't really remember when I first started using Pure Nickel strings (of any brand), but I DO know I have never used anything but Pure Nickel since.
          The strings got a 4 star rating. I purposely omitted 1 star because, I feel they don't last as long as say a Nickel wound D'Addario would...but then again, I have not found a Pure Nickel D'Addario set of strings. So I forfeit the longevity for the tone.
          I DID just today order some Fender 150M (medium gauge 11's)...which are also Pure Nickel. I would never order 10 sets of strings if I didn't like them. Once I get to play the 11's, I will give a review on that product page.
          As far as Fender Pure Nickel strings go...you can't go wrong on the tonal quality.
          Rock on!!!
