Fender Nickel Strings

By Zeke Olguin

from Earth

Comments about Fender 3150R Original Bullets Pure Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Regular:

I have Fender Pure Nickel strings on my Fender Jazz bass and my Fender Stratocaster, and I can't say enough about them. I just feel that they compliment the nickel frets on both instruments very well, giving a smooth feel and sound. I lose that weird chime and clank of steel strings and replace it with the smoothness of the actual notes being played. I find other strings to be harsh, and these strings are the opposite. I enjoy strings after they are broken in, and these strings are my favorites. After 17 years of playing and playing every other strings on the market, these are IT, never will I stray from using them!
The bullet ends just fit better, period. If you have a Fender, these are your strings.
USA made, and made well.
Cheap to buy, but not cheap sounding or playing. There is no better value IMO.

    Comments about Fender 3150R Original Bullets Pure Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Regular:

    I never tried "pure nickel strings" before. Put these on a Fender Strat.
    Have another Fender Strat with Ernie Ball "nickel wound" strings. Both guitars
    have same "vintage noiseless" pickups and tone woods and necks.
    Tested guitars on same amp clean sound.
    "Pure nickels" have less output and a very nice warm sound.
    "Nickel wounds" have more output and a very nice brighter sound.
    Now I have two nice but different sounding Strat guitars.
    Is one better than the other? IMO No. Just different. If you have not tried
    Fender "pure nickels" give them a try. You might find a tone that you never
    heard before!

      Comments about Fender 3150R Original Bullets Pure Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Regular:

      I strung these up on a (Prepare yourself) A Fender Starcaster. Yep. Starcaster. I plan on fixing it up to play as good as a MIA Strat. Thing is, it DRAMATICALLY increased tone. Gave it that classic vibe. Reminds me of that Stevie Ray Vaughn sound. These strings stayed in tune very fast and well. I really only got these to see if the Starcaster was good enough to go through with the over-haul. I was blown away. Fender's description was spot on. Only issue and it's not the manufacture's fault, Is that these don't have a very high output. So if you want an all around string that will play anything, don't get these. Pick you up some heavy gauge strings made with another material. Do your research about string materials. I was using the .009's, bends never sounded so sweet. Great, great string for blues and classic rock.

      My Go-To strings

      Comments about Fender 3150R Original Bullets Pure Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Regular:

      I've tried many strings, even several other Fender branded sets. These just hold up longer, and have a nice warm tone that I like.
      Easily accessable packaging for "on the fly" string change. Great tone, stays in tune.
      These strings last longer for me than most others, they stay in tune great and have a great tone. I play pretty hard, and while breaking strings is nothing new to me, at least these seem to last a bit longer.
      great price.

        Comments about Fender 3150R Original Bullets Pure Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - Regular:

        Have ALWAYS loved Fender Pure Nickel strings.
        I recently set up one of my Strats with a solid steel trem block, and started using the tremolo bar (usually I just "hardtail" my guitars)...and these bullet ends are perfect for not getting hung up in the trem block and knocking your guitar out of tune.
        I'm gonna keep buying them.

          I tried other strings and found them to be difficult to keep in tune on my Squier Strat. Every time I would hit the term, it would be out of tune in seconds. Once I switched to the Bullet strings, they stayed in tune and improved the toffee of the guitar. I used 10's which are light enough to take a good bend yet strong enough not to break.

                    The Bullets have it if great string resonance with your Strat (tm) is important. Gauges have changed to be more competitive in today's string market; and, that does provide a tonal asset. Might be nice to have each string wrapped in its own paper sleeve. Much easier that can be for the restringing process. All in all, I prefer the solid junction between string and body the Bullets provide.

                          Great strings!
                          I only play pure nickel. On my hard-tail and/or blocked guitars, I use Fender Pure Nickel 150R or 150M strings (simply because bullets are a little more expensive and not necessary on those).....and on my floating Tremolo/Trem Block guitars I use these.
                          The bullet ends float (or slide) up and down in the trem block when using the "whammy bar", and stays in tune much better than the ball (or eye) end strings that have flat edges that may get hung up in the cavity of the trem block.
                          No; I'm not brain-washed. I've been playing for over 35 years, and this has been tested---tried and true.
                          If you use your whammy on a Stratocaster or Telecaster, you're gonna want these strings. Can't speak for any other guitars.

                                      I have always liked the number 10 Original Bullets nickel wound strings for my strat. The bullet end is easier to push out of a tremolo bridge when restringing and it seats well.
