Great sound

By Hal-Wzb7J

Comments about Gibson VR11 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

Put the strings on my $99. special and what a difference. I could not believe it was the same guitar. Made it sound like a much higher priced guitar. Buying more for my other guitar.

        Comments about Gibson VR11 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

        I've been using these for a few years now, they sound great. The 11 gauge are my favorite, (talking to novice players) If you can use the 11s you should, they'll bring any guitar to life. You will get use to them over time, and bending will get easier. I'm not a very fast player, and I do a lot of bending. These strings cut through and have a very clean, crisp feel. Great for power chords.They're great strings, high qaulity.

                  The best on my guitar

                  Comments about Gibson VR11 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

                  Wow! I have a 54 year old Harmony Roy Smeck H56 with a Lace Gold p/u. These strings sound better than any I have used on it. The stay tuned and hold up well. The tone is great for the variety of stuff I play and the style (thumb and finger). They are well worth the extra cost. I have used about every brand and type of strings over the years and believe that the strings are where your sound starts. They are the best I have used.

                      I used these strings on my Epiphone Les Paul 100, which is one of the cheaper Les Pauls out there. And the tone of the guitar instantly improved. The strings added a lot of clarity to my guitar. It almost made my Les Paul 100 sound like the Gibsons that I have played. I would really recommend this to any player that has an Epiphone guitar.

                      Comments about Gibson VR11 Vintage Reissue Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

                      I didn't know what kind of sound to expect when I bought these strings because I had never used pure nickle before. Slapped them on my LP and they sound terrific (like all gibson strings). They have a really dark, mellow, chimmy kind of sound. I like them a lot. I gave it a 4.0 for quality though cause I was trying to tune my high-e a full step up and the ball end of the string broke off. Oh well, I'm buying em again.
