OVERVIEW

Gauges: 09-11-16-24-32-42.

Original Bullets Pure Nickel bullet-end electric guitar strings deliver a smooth feel with reduced finger noise. The tone is rich and warm with abundant harmonics. Fender's patented bullet end creates a sonic coupling between the string and bridge block, for rock-solid tuning stability and increased sustain. These guitar strings are perfect for blues, jazz, and classic rock.

Fender has been an instrument of choice for many of the greatest musicians since 1946. Fender's popularity through the generations is a result of their design innovations and commitment to quality. These replacement guitar strings reflect this legacy and are worthy of the Fender name. Attention to detail and the finest materials ensure that you will get the best feeling and greatest sounding strings, set after set.

Pure nickel strings have a distinct, vintage-style tone with softer highs, more mid-range detail, and lower output than modern alloys. They generally work well with single-coil pickups and low-output humbuckers (like vintage PAFs) played at relatively low-gain settings. Think classic rock, blues, and EVH "Brown Sound" tones. If you're after high-gain, scooped-mids, modern metal tones, then pure nickel strings aren't for you.

I've used Fender pure nickel 9s on my vintage '56 Les Paul Junior, my '00 Custom Shop Les Paul Junior, and regular production '90s Les Paul Special. These strings are a great match to P90s! There's rich mid-range detail. Single notes have a bit of "bloom" to them and chords ring out with excellent note separation.

They have a slinky/flexy feel. Very easy to bend. I play with a light tough and low action, so that really works for me. If you're someone who really pounds the strings, you may want something with a more high-tension feel. They seem to last a long time, but my hands are dry and corrosion usually isn't an issue for me.

Overall, Fender makes some of the best pure nickel strings around, especially considering the very low price. They also offer you a choice of bullet-end or conventional ball-end, so pay attention to which one you order.

      Great strings for my MIM Strat. I love the bullet ends which seem to fit better in the block and the nickel wrap cuts some of the twang to make these very full sounding in all pickup positions. They are a bit softer to touch and reduce finger slide noise.

                  I used Ernie Ball strings on all of my electric guitars since the very early 1970's. One of my guitar playing buddys told me to give the bullet end, pure nickle wrap a try. The very first chord I hit had me hooked ! I couldn't believe the difference. I consider all of the money I'd spent on the EB strings , a total waste.These strings , as far as I'm concerned , are the BEST ! Thank you SO much.The bullet ends work great the way they sit in the bridge block.
