The legacy of famed guitar deity Jimi Hendrix is not to be taken lightly. And when it comes to getting involved in a Hendrix guitar-related project, one better know what one is doing.
Jimi started recording with Nickel Plated Steel strings. That's one of the sounds you hear. Yeah, there are lots of amps involved, but the very beginning sound came from the guitar strings. The Pure Nickel outer wrap has a special Vintage tone that no other string has. Dean Markley has reproduced that original Hendrix Pure Nickel String.

Comments about Dean Markley 8861 Jimi Hendrix NPS Light Electric Guitar Strings:
Very bright sounding strings that pack the extra punch. They are very durable as the held there tonality through a couple of months of playing. On both my Les Paul and SG the strings provided a similiar acoustic brightness when the electric guitars were not even plugged in. As far as when they were plugged in, i could notice a greater bight with distortion.I will use these again, but maybe the 10's next time.
