Pyramid Nickel Classic Special 010-048

String Set for GuitarThe special feature of these strings is the round core wire of the wound strings. Normal strings have hexagonal (hexagonal) core wires, which simplifies production and the manufacturing costs. Round core wires on the other hand must be wound with the utmost care in order to secure a uniform contact pressure to the nickel wire. The Pyramid Nickel Classic strings therefore have a significantly improved vibration behaviour, which provides a very long decay of the string (sustain) and a uniform sound development.

Important: The wound strings cannot be simply cut because the nickel round wound would unravel immediately. First twist the string sharply and then cut the string behind the bend.

  • Pure nickel
  • Gauges: .010, .013, .017, .028, .038, .048
  • Round core wire with pure nickel wrap
  • Improved vibration behaviour

One of my favourite strings

03.06.2015
I first tried Pyramid Nickel Classic Special 010-048 strings to soften the sound of a too-bright guitar. I fitted a Pigtail lightweight alimunium wrapover to my 1991 Gibson Les Paul Junior and found that although the guitar sounded much more lively it was far too bright when strung with my usual D'Addario nickel plated strings.

I decided to try these pure nickel strings to see if they would soften the sound and they certainly did the trick. The guitar sounded much warmer, although still with plenty of treble and in addition the strings themselves feel much softer to play, bends are easier and the whole feel of the guitar has improved.

I've used these strings for about eight years now and wouldn't go back.

Good quality form germany for little money

I tried several Pyramid Strings so far and I just got disapointed once: That was, when I got obviously an old set of strings. That brings me to the only deficit: The strings are not vacuum packed. Sound an duration are great. But as it is always with strings, it depends on the guitar. I like these ones on my Les Paul and on my Strat, but I think these ones work a little bit better with Les Pauls and the blues ones a bit better with Strats. I think you can find the perfect Pyrimd for your guitar.
