Re: Why You Should Try Pure Nickel Strings

I wouldn't worry about it too much: finding the perfect string and gauge isn't something you can get right in one or two tries.
If you find they're too "loose" try a gauge up. And if you find the tone isn't exactly what you want, whether it's too dark or bright, post your findings here and 5F6-A, myself or one of the other guys should be able to point you in the right direction. Good luck, my friend!
Thatīs fine my good man! I will let you know ASAP I get them.
