Classic electric guitar string tone dates back to the 1950s, when pure nickel was the primary alloy used. As the need for brighter tone and higher magnetic strings grew in the '60s, nickel-plated steel became the industry standard. D'Addario XL strings feature nickel-plated steel, but these EPN110 XL Pure Nickel guitar strings offer a warmer, vintage tone alternative which many enthusiasts prefer.

these string are frickin' amazing,got them, strung 'em, then I started playing, yes! I love these things, they have great vintage tone to them, really nice tone, it's mellow and bright, but just enough, it's not to bright, not to mellow, perfect if you ask me, to me it sounded like there is a perfect spot for your tone to sit and i just felt like when the strings were strummed I felt the strings just roll right into that spot. GET THEM. YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED.
I tried these out of curiousity as much as anything else, and I gotta say these strings are incredible. I went with 10-45, and I find them to be very responsive with a classic full tone. They are only on my PRS 24 right now, but I can see them being rotated on all the rest.
These D'Addario pure nickels are pure gold. Beautifully warm on clean channel, but plenty of crunch when you need it on OD. They have the perfect feel -- not too scratchy, not too slick -- and the evenness of tone between the D and G strings is remarkable.
