    I've been playing for over 20 years. Played many types of guitars before I settled on the Strat. I've used these strings on all of the guitars over the years. Back then string breakage was my main problem. These strings have been proven reliable over the years. The best feature is their durability with strength as well as tone. And you can't beat the value.

    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.

    Over 50 years of playing I have tried other mfg. stings in a pinch but always came back to Fender 150's finding them consistant in every aspect... which to a guitarist means always having the feel and sound you expect each time you play.

    I switched to these strings after using Ernie Ball and GHS. They have a little less jangle to them which I prefer and bend easily. Great value too. BAM!

      Best strings, period.

      By piloto117

      from Undisclosed

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

      These pure nickel strings are the best ever. Fender makes them better than ever, I haven't broken a string for quite some time now with these! The tone is sweet, perfect clarity with lots of musical overtones. I like them more for single coils and clean tones, but works good with humbuckers and distortion. Some people prefer nickel plated steel, which is another sound and different beast. But for classic tones, you can't go wrong with fender nickels. I'm VERY impressed with the durability of these strings, first reviewer MUST have gotten a bad batch!

      Review

      By Michael Byers

      from Jersey Shore

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

      I am surprised that a reviewer would trash a set of string that clearly was a defective pack....probably the fault of how they were stored by the retailer. I have 7 Fenders (4 strats) all strung with Fender Pure Nickels. Years ago I used EB's and recently forced to try GHS Rockers (within a couple days the new string sperkle was gone). The Fenders are indeed a perfect match for Fender guitars. For the Strats the 3150R bullets have eliminated premature breakage I experienced with other brands. My other three Fenders are humbucking equipped and the barrel end 150R's have a nice response and a familiar feel for me.

      Nickel is key

      By Old Man Turner

      from Sonoma County

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

      I am a firm believer that Fender makes the best strings for Fender guitars... and nickel is what we hear when listening to so many classic recordings. The tone is just unmistakable. Sweet and pure with good sustain. These strings wear fairly well, stay in tune, play great, and most importantly they sound amazing. If you have a Stratocaster or Strat style guitar the Pure Nickel Bullets, in my opinion, are by far the best string you can buy. They are the same nickel as these strings but the Bullets were built around the Stratocaster. Across the board, the Fender Nickel strings are perfectly suited to Fender single coil pickups. They are priced right so picking up a set with your next order to check em out is a low to no risk deal.
