Item Description

GHS Big Core Nickel Rockers Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings
The reason the strings are called Big Core is because they start with a much larger core wire and then wrap around it. This offers a nice fat string that brings heavy tone and a smooth feel.

Also, the gauges are slightly different than anything else GHS offers. All sets start with half gauges (.0095, .0105) and go up from there. This gauging is of course, caused by the core wire ratio.

Excellent tone and rich harmonic content
My band covers a huge amount of musical territory. I'm playing slide as much, or more, than common chording and lead work. I found that the normal 10 to 46 or 10 to 48 GHS Boomers I commonly used were a little lighter than I would have liked when I was switching to slide and causing the slide to bottom out if I didn't concentrate on keeping my touch a little lighter. I used GHS's Big Core Nickel Rockers when they were first available,and I loved them then, so I picked up a couple sets to see if they would remedy my situation. The thicker core makes the strings a bit more stiff than conventional strings, so they're great for alternate, and lower tunings. They also add a bit of volume. They work perfectly for me, and solved my problem with a couple unexpected benefits to boot. First of all, they have enough added tension to switch to and from slide without any problems. Secondly, they stand up to repeatedly changing to alternate or open tunings without breaking nearly so often. Lastly, they have a rich, deep tone with beautiful harmonics, and a nice little bump up in both volume and mids. I don't usually write reviews, but these are exceptional strings, and set the standard for me. I can't recommend them enough to anyone who can benefit from the qualities I mentioned above. Great strings with great tone very reasonable price.

Has been my #1 choice of strings for quite a while now
I don't really know what it is about these strings that has made me forsake all others. They feel so good under the fingers. They're lovely and bright. They last well. They bend beautifully. I've tried many other brands and gauges of strings, and these Big Cores are just stand-outs. I now use the 9.5-48s on both my Strats and Teles and all guitars just feel so, so good. Love 'em!
ProsFeel good to play. Quite bright but not twangy and harsh. Really nice to bend with.
ConsNot super, super long lasting, but then they're not coated.

Amazing sounding strings
These strings are awesome! I have been playing this one set for a while and notes clarity are still there as new, and those are very nice on the pocket too.

ProsGreat tension, sustain, and life

Best strings I ever used
Been playing for 45 years and these strings are the best. I use the custom 9 1/2, they last a long time even playing everyday. Sound great! Bending with breaking. Much better tan Ernie Ball.
ProsLast a long time Doesn't break with extreme bending.

Love these strings
I bought these originally because of their connection with Santana. I was using 10's on my Fenders and Gibsons. I felt that 10's seemed too loose on my Gibsons, so I threw these on. The tension is perfect, and it improved my sustain by leaps and bounds. Now there isn't a drastic difference when I have to switch from Fender to Gibson. I'll never look back. Great tone!
ProsGreat tension, sustain, and life.
ConsHard to find in stores, thus why I purchase from this great company.

new big core 9.5-48
I was looking for an intermediate gauges between 9-46 and 11-49. No one does. Others make 9.5 44, but the bass sounds tweak I found GHS does this guuge. I've tried it I think are really delicious strings. Sounds very good, are granted, and I can easily bending 1 and1/2 tune. I did not understand what it does to the sound "the big core" , but I am very well
Prosguages bending
Conshigh E and B in vintage kluson are a bit hard to mount

GHS Santana 10.5 strings
Great tone and feel - very impressive string response on my hollowbody. Bell like tone when clean to nasty crunch when needed. Thanks GHS.
