Pyramid Strings Electric Nickel Classics Roundwound.
10-46,10-48,11-48,11-52,12-54.Vintage Orange package.Strings are silver-plated steel and pure nickel round wound on a round core.These strings are made exactly the same way as electric guitar strings were made in the Fifties and Sixties using a round core. Around 1970 (or so) most string manufactures switched from round core to hex core’s for wound strings. This helped them “lock” the wrap onto the core for less defective wound strings. Unfortunately, the tone and sound of the strings changed considerably. Sadly, this is what we are all use to hearing and playing these days… Until NOW! Round core constructed string offer better harmonics, longer string vibrations, better tone and longer string life. Pyramid is about the only company offering a true round core, pure nickel wrapped strings. These are exact to the specs they used originally from the late `40’s thru the 1960’s and feature a small core and large wrap.Modern guitar strings feature a hex core (hexagonal) construction as the core for the wound strings. This simplifies production and reduces costs, but the use of hex core wire also presents certain tonal disadvantages. In production, soft nickel wire can become slightly compromised when it ´bites´ on the edges of the hex core, causing micro notches on the inside of the wrapping wire.Hex core wire is also stiffer and less flexible than round core wire, all of which can negatively affect the vibration characteristics and tone produced by the wound string. Pyramid round core strings represent a return to the way strings were made in the ´50s and ´60s, with audibly enhanced tone and sustain.Please notice when installing round core sets,a 90 degree bend must be made in the wound strings to ´set the wrap.´ Simply make a sharp bend before cutting the string to the desired length behind (after) the bend. We use round core classics and highly recommend them..
