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 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'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.

        from Jersey Shore

        See all my reviews

        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.

        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!

              MF had them in stock, prices right and shipped them out fast. I've been wanting to try Pure Nickels for a while. Put one set on a very bright Tele to try and take some of the ice-pick out. Sounds great. And the strings feel great.

                  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 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.
