Pyramid Nickel Classics Regular010-046

Guitar String Set

Pyramid Nickel Classic strings are made with meticulous care and with selected materials. The special feature of this product is the round core wire of the wrapped strings. Normal strings have hexagonal (hexagonal) core wires, which simplify production and reduce manufacturing costs.

Round core wires, on the other hand, must be wound with the utmost care in order to ensure uniform pressure of the nickel wire. The extra cost is worth it.

The PYRAMID Nickel Classic strings have a significantly improved vibration response, resulting in a very long sustain of the string (sustain) and a consistent tone 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, .026, .036, .046
  • Round core wire with pure nickel wrap
  • Improved vibration behavior

Great string for vintage tones

Hilario G., 23.11.2013
These strings are lovingly made in the heart of Germany and they are in my experience simply fantastic. I've been using them for a few years now and I haven't found a better string for my music. My main guitar is a Strat type guitar but I have had them in Gibson type guitars and these strings always feel and sound great.
I ordered my first set when I read the very positive reviews made in the magazine ToneQuest. I realised that for the music I was playing (Chicago and West Coast blues and 60s British rock) I needed a string that could provide those elusive tones. I had the right guitar and the right amp with the right speakers but there was something missing. Then I realised that hex core, stainless steel strings were just the wrong choice. I first tried pure nickel strings from a different manufacturer and they helped but there was still room for improvement.
The Pyramids Nickel Classics were the answer! The round core made the strings more flexible and supple, thus helping guitar bending (a must in blues) and ensured that the wound strings sounded as they should. The plain strings also felt better and this set (10-46) was the perfect compromise for me between tension and tone. The tone is incredible rich and definitely "old-school", for a lack of a better word: very 60s sounding. Another plus is that they seem to last a long time and they do not change tone that much. They sound slightly worn-in from when you first put them on and the tone does not change even after some heavy sessions down in the club. Just make sure you do not cut them short before attaching them and you are safe.
I would recommend these strings for anybody who likes the good ol' tones of yesteryear guitar music. By the way, I have left the best aspect for last: the price for a set of these Pyramid strings at Thomann is really, really reasonable. I have found my string for life.

Simply the best I have ever used

Geoffrey8950, 16.09.2015
Love these strings they give me that sound that I have searched to find for so long.
Classic sound that compliments my guitars and amplifiers to give me that 60's sound that so many of us strive to achieve. Give them a try. Surely a contender for the best you can buy?
