Product Reviews for Pyramid Gold Pure Nickel Flat Wound 6 String, .013 - .052, GF613

Pyramid Gold Pure Nickel Flat Wound 6 String, .013 - .052, GF6135DougAugust 10, 2011I am primarily a finger style player using more pad than nail. These were installed on my Guild X-150 Savoy built in Waverly. I have tried a variety of strings on my Guild looking for the right fit, something with enough heft to drive the top, good timbre and nice feel. Strings I've tried: whatever the guitar was originally strung with, D'Addario XLS stainless, Thomastik-Infeld Jazz Swing flat wounds, and Black Diamond Pure Jazz chrome flatwounds. Of the above I like the Black Diamonds the best, but I think from now on I'll be using the Pyramids. One of the concerns I have with flatwounds is that even though they offer pure tone, they have a tendency to be clunky, lacking singing qualities or sustain. The Pyramids aren't like typical flatwounds offering both pure tone and sustain. They are great for ballads. These strings are a physical pleasure to play as well having a soft silky feel.

PYRAMID Gold Electric Guitar Strings "ORIGINAL VINTAGE FLATWOUNDS"

PYRAMID flat wounds for guitar allow the user to produce exactly the much loved British, Surf, Pop, Rock and Country sounds of the late 50's & 60's and are great for all types of today's music as well. Superlative musical tone and timbre is not all you get with nickel flat sounds. You get great feeling strings, a lower action than is possible with round wound strings and you also get very low finger noise!

Excellent for all types of music, brilliant with the warmth of pure nickel, flat wound with "twang", lush upper harmonics, long sustain, extreme long life, great smooth feel perfectly balanced, extra musical, a joy to play.
