Overview

The String

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 Pure Nickel guitar strings. That's one of the sounds you hear. Yeah, there are lots of amps involved, but the very beginning sound came from the 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.

Awesome Guitar Strings

By SweetStratFan

from San Bernardino

Comments about Dean Markley 8862 Jimi Hendrix NPS Regular Electric Guitar Strings:

Simply put...Possibly one of the best strings I have ever bought. I have found the feel and sound of strings that I have always wanted from my guitar. Light, bright, and bell like tones with still a deep and sweet resounding bass. The touch is smooth and sound crisp. I honestly bought the strings just because it has Jimi's name on it and I chose the Axis ones over the Electric Ladyland album stings because Axis, in my opinion, was the better album. I had high expectations, but I was still taken by surprise. I will buy these strings for the rest of my life. Give them a try.

THE strings for that strat vibe!

By Straty

from Up North

Comments about Dean Markley 8862 Jimi Hendrix NPS Regular Electric Guitar Strings:

I tried a set of these strings ONLY because they were on sale. I'm the last person to believe that because Hendix was on them that they were going to be extra special. Well guess what, they are! I put these on my backup Strat and it sounded better that my main Strat. . The strings have a musical "pop" in them. I own around 18 guitars and tried ALOT of different strings. Love these, I just ordered 6 more sets.

Pretty Good

By Brad

from Tucson Arizona

Comments about Dean Markley 8862 Jimi Hendrix NPS Regular Electric Guitar Strings:

I got these strings a few weeks ago. I like them, they play well and have a nice sound. You can down tune or up tune with ease. If you like to play Hendrix stuff or just like his sound you should get some of these. They play clean, rough, anything you want pretty much.

String gauge?

By Bill Ewing

from Encinitas, CA

Comments about Dean Markley 8862 Jimi Hendrix NPS Regular Electric Guitar Strings:

Hey Guitar Center website dudes, how about telling what the string gauges are? It matters. Some of tune down to Eb a la Jimi, and some don't.
