Product Reviews for Pyramid Gold Pure Nickel Flat Wound 6 String, .013 - .052, GF613
Pyramid Gold Pure Nickel Flat Wound 6 String, .013 - .052, GF613DougAugust 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.
