Product Reviews for Fender Electric Guitar Pure Nickel Bullet End, .009 - .042, 3150L

Fender Electric Guitar Pure Nickel Bullet End, .009 - .042, 3150L5David BellinoJanuary 17, 2012I just finished a trial between the 3150L, and D'Addario & Elixir of the same gauges. D'Addario doesn't have pure nickel, it is plated, and Elixir doesn't say what they are made of. While they all were still just a few days old, meaning so they still sounded new. I changed from one to the other. I am using them on a Jeff Beck artist series Strat. The all sounded good, with the Elixir having a softer, somewhat less defined sound for chording. The clearest of all were the Fender. I was especially surprised because solos above 12th fret were clearer and had more sustain. I also felt the sustain must be a result of the bullet ends as the two others have ball ends. I've tried Ernie Balls in the past, not on this guitar, but I don't care for their tone. So they were never in the mix. I like these a lot and no longer have a need to try others. I play a mix of music, not including metal or hard rock, but just about everything else. They are great on ballads, country, blues, southern, rock and jazz.

Original Bullets

 

"We started with our pure nickel wound strings (same as the Original 150's) and added our newly improved patented Bullet end. Designed especially for your tremolo-equipped electric guitar, the Bullet end gives additional tuning stability to the vintage sound of pure nickel wound."
