"Pure nickel, which is what guitar strings were made out of in the early 60's, slowly wound on a round core, big phat sound, awesome sustain, very balanced, great feel. Try'em out, you're gonna love it!" - David Morris, Dean Markley Strings

These pure nickel strings are hand wound over a round core, allowing 100% contact with the wrap wire, producing long sustained vibration throughout the string.
