Electric Guitar Help

      One of the biggest factors in the sound of electric guitar strings is the wrap wire. This wire is wrapped around a core wire to provide deeper and more sustained mid-range and bass tones for your electric guitar. While tone will vary slightly in each guitar's pickup, here are general characteristics of different wrap wire materials:

      • Steel Electric Guitar Strings offer a penetratingly bright tone, with powerfully precise lows. Generally the brightest and most magnetic guitar strings, they are known for great crunch and sustain.

      • Nickel Electric Guitar Strings offer bright tone, with excellent intonation due to the 8% nickel-plated wrap wire. These are great for magnetic pickups and a wide range of playing styles.

      • Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings offer a warmer, vintage tone. The warmer timbre comes from the pure nickel wrap wire, compared to the brighter tone of the 8% nickel. Great for blues or classic rock.

      The profile of the wrap wire also effects tone and feel with:
      • Round wound being the brightest and roughest
      • Half round being warmer and smoother
      • Flat wound being the most mellow and smoothest.
