Clean Tone

20th May 2018

For the past two years, I have played various sets of GHS strings. I generally play a heavy gauge, for example, the Thick Core 11-56 on my Fender Strat. I wanted to see the difference between those and my most recent purchase, the Nickel Rockers 10 1/2-48. For the last two strings, I added two singles, a 54 and 36. I love the sound. These Nickel Rockers Big Core are awesome.

End of my string search!!!

Great strings!! Really unique and makes my guitar feel as it should without getting to heavy of strings on my strat. The low E is just amazing, the high E is perfect and everything in between fits just right as well. You owe it to yourself to try these if you play blues or jazz!!!

These roller-wound sets are the closest thing to flat-wounds, but play and sound like electric blues strings. Warm sound, long life, smooth touch, and nice tension. That 11.5 makes a really big difference on the high E, which tend to sound somewhat thin and out of balance. Taste is a personal preference, you will admit that GHS makes high quality strings.

Big Tone, maked your guttar ding LOUDER.

Good string, last and lasts, the 11.5 E string gives you a little more bite when you solo. Give them a try...not intended for..." oh they hurt my finger." Get over it and listen to how well your Guitar sounds!
