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.

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

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!!!

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!

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

    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.

    Best strings, period.

    By 

    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!
