Designed for maximum feel, balance and endurance.

Thanks to René Martinez, GHS is proud to bring you the guitar tones that have defined music for the last 20 years. René worked as a guitar technician for some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Carlos Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eddie Brickwell, Clint Black, The Moody Blues, and Prince. As a musician he understood what the players wanted and in turn developed his own new products and techniques for them to use.

Designed for maximum feel, balance and endurance, the wound strings are structured with a bigger core and nickel wrap of the highest quality - the plain strings are slightly bigger also, to best retain size and durability. Ideal for playing in your living room or on the world's biggest stages.

Gauges: 10.5-13.5-1- 28-38-48

Make your guitar come alive with a set of these. Order today.

    Comments about GHS Nickel Rockers Big Core Light:

    I started using these when they were the Santana Signature strings. I used 10's on all of my electrics, they were great on the Fenders but felt too loose on my Gibsons. So I switched to the half guages. Great tone sustain and adds the right amount of tension to my Gibsons.

    Best strings ever.

    Comments about GHS Nickel Rockers Big Core Light:

    Not for the faint of heart. I played Ernie Ball regular slinkies for years on my American Strat and they are a great string, but on a whim I tried out some Nickle Rockers and wow! I had to turn back the volume on my amp to compensate for the bright, rich sound! I swore I'd never go back to regular strings, then I found that Musician's friend does not carry the nickle rockers in 10's, so I had to try these out. Way more bright and aggressive than even the regular nickle rockers! I had to make some tension adjustments to my strat's tremelo to accomidate the 10.5 gauge, but it is worth it, and It doesn't feel like I'm playing a larger string.
    I play a lot of blues based rock and for that SRV sound, this is it. Bottom line.
