The strings are nickel-coated steel, and they sound quite good and mellow when they are new. However, the quality of the latest production is questionable. The set comes with an extra high-E string, and it was needed straight away. The high-E string installed first broke during the procedure of intonating the guitar, and it was not due to the bridge, nut or tuning machine - the string broke in the middle, somewhere around the forth fret. Also, the strings corrode quite heavily in comparison to some other I have used. When I used this strings previously, over a year ago, they used to be of a better quality, so it may be that I was unlucky just with the latest set.
What can I say about strings? The Rotosound R10 are great sounding strings. They are not to bright, like steel strings. Nickelwound strings sound warmer and fuller, that is the reason why i play Nickelwounds on all my guitars. Besides the sound, they feel great. I don´t like coated strings, because they always feel ... let me say wrong. So i prefere to change my strings more often but have great sounding and feeling strings. Because of that, the string sets shouldn´t be too expensive. The price of the Rotosound R10 ist ok, and there is always a second high e string, in case emergency ;-) On a few of my guitars i play D´addario strings (my fovorite strings) but they have coloured ball ends, and that looks not right on my Les Paul because i wrap the strings aroud the Stoptail... but the Rotosound R10 are a great compromise for me.
