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!!!

    Best strings, period.

    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!

        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.

        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.

            My opinion on strings changes about as often as I change strings, and I change strings often. That's why I don't buy Elixir. I actually like to change strings. Anyway, These have great tone, at a great price. Right now I use them on my strat, and my tele. I might stay with these a while...

              Unlike most of the other reviewers I don't play a Fender. I have only owned Gibsons Les Paul's and a couple of SG's. My fellow band members introduced me to these strings in 1975. We all got used to them and bought them by the case. Over the years we all tried other brands but always returned to the Fenders. Very dependable quality though they are susceptible to moisture tarnishing them. Store them in airtight containers!

                        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.
