OVERVIEW

Warm, classic timbres ” a tone seeker's delight.

D'Addario XL Pure Nickel guitar strings look back to the '50s when nickel was the primary alloy found in electric guitar strings. Into the '60s, these pure nickel strings would be supplanted when guitarists required brighter tone and enhanced magnetic properties and characteristic of the D'Addario XL nickel-plated steel string line. Pure Nickel delivers classic, warmer timbres that define many genres including blues, classic rock, rockabilly, and more.

Comments about D'Addario EPN21 Pure Nickel Jazz Lite Electric Guitar Strings:

When I put a set on and tune them, I may have to retune one more time and they are ready to go as opposed to 2 days of doing this with other strings. They are soft to play on which feels great. The tone is perfect for me giving me the exact blend of warmth/brightness that I desire.

BEST STRING EVER FOR BEEFY TONE

      Comments about D'Addario EPN21 Pure Nickel Jazz Lite Electric Guitar Strings:

      They really are more consistent than any brand or type string I've ever used with very little tone change after break in. I'm using 12s with Wound G on my Tele and I love this setup for rhythm, riffs and picking - easier on fingers. I have a plain G 11's on my other Tele with P90 neck set up for flat picking blues. The only diff is on the wound strings but it does wonders helping tame brightness of No-Caster Pickups and adds a little warmth and depth. Not dull by any means. They do seem a little softer to play also. Worth a try if this sounds like you - you might never go back.

          Comments about D'Addario EPN21 Pure Nickel Jazz Lite Electric Guitar Strings:

          Bought these string as a possible replacement for using so called "Acoustic" stings. These were just about as hard to use and just did not do the job well.

          Good Value for Archtops

          Comments about EPN21 Pure Nickel Jazz Lite Electric Guitar Strings:

          Makes a good archtop come alive. Not as smooth as the John Pearse set but at half the price you get what you pay for.
