For that price? Are you kidding?

If someone handed you your own guitar strung with these string for the first time, chances are that you'd thing these are the pure nickel strings you always used (unless you use any type of Fender wire ropes...).
For roundwounds my prefered brand is Dunlop, the sound, the tension, the durability, suit me perfectly, these Pyramid strings remind me of Ernie Ball strings, generally flexible wound strings, full sound, not dull, but with not much of the metallic character of other strings, which is totally expected from any pure nickel string.
I've put these in my Strat and Tele and they work just fine, no broken strings, no intonation or tuning problems, proper volume consistency from string to string, so great!

Just keep in mind that the package is not air-shielded, so if you buy a lot of packs keep them in a very dry box/drawer and they will stay fresh for months and months!

I don't intend to replace my favorite guitar's Dunlops with these, but I have a lot of guitars and also a small studio, so as I have found no issue with them, I can now have always fresh strings on my record-ready guitars and have some spare sets if a guitarist breaks a string or comes with dead strings.

Finally, note that these are not "cheap" strings, they are cheap at thomann because they are made in germany so no importing costs and extra taxes.

Good sounding nickels strings but the "green" Pyramids are better
TrEr 04.06.2021
I love pure nickel strings and these are no exception. However, I prefer the other Pyramid pure nickels strings in the green packaging, "Maximum Performance". I have no idea why they are different. They are both hex core and the same gauges. Maybe the core of the wound strings is a slightly different thickness? The green ones just feel nicer to me. They seem to have a slightly more supple feel and maybe just a tiny bit more clarity in the mids. But the green ones are also more expensive of course.

Still, these are great strings for a warmer, less metallic tone from the wound strings. They are also amazing value at the prices Thomann sell them for.

Recommended!

(I might add that I like the roundcore Pyramid Nickel Classics even better than the green ones but on some of my guitars I simply prefer hex core strings for practical reasons).

A Brand to keep an eye on!

Instant 5 stars in the price/performance department! Made me curious to investigate other Pyramid-branded sets in the future.
Picked these up to replace the standard 9-42s on a recently-acquired shortscale guitar, and so far it feels like they are not going anytime soon! Instead of the overly bright and flashy feeling you get from putting on new strings (and that vanishes in just a few days), these opt instead to give a hope of staying the same a bit longer than you'd expect.
The Elixir/coated aficionados will likely find my sentiments laughable, I know :)

Value for money, but...

These strings are great value but cheap comes at a cost. Manufacture is good, no tarnishing or poor feel out of the box. But soundwise, couldn't get to balance them. Plain strings sound with much more output than the wound strings, resulting in a quite unbalanced feel, especially the jump from D to G.
