Excellent tone for heavy rock
March 19, 2019
I've been using Dean Markley Blue Steel strings for years but now I'm searching for alternatives because the Blue Steel strings are always out of stock. I ordered Pyramid strings because that's what Wolf Hoffman of Accept uses. However, I ordered the stainless steel strings because I'm allergic to nickel. These strings are great...very nice feel and the tone is very bright which I love. I've tried the strings on my Gibson Les Paul, Gibson Explorer and Jackson Soloist and the results have been great. I tried multiple gauges with good results. In addition, the strings have lasted a long time - took a long time to tarnish and the wound strings kept their tone. I'll definitely continue to use these strings.
ProsGreat tone and nice feel.
ConsPackaging won't protect the strings against corrosion - don't order too many sets at a time and make sure you use them quickly.
The wound strings use a round core so they can unravel quickly. Not recommended for floyd rose bridges.
