D'Addario Electric Guitar Pure Nickel .009 - .041, EPN120
I play mostly acoustic but lately I have had the bug to drag out my electric. When I played it just didn't sound the way I wanted. Nickel plated strings were just not making it. I put these on last night and it the sound was exactly what I was looking for. I have found the right string.

Favorite strings!
If you like the tone and sound of virtually every hit record from 1954 to 1968. This is the material [pure nickel] that was used on every one of them from Chuck Berry to The Beatles.

Great tone, great feel, great sound. IF you want that Duane Eddy sound, you will need these strings. The original is still the greatest!

D'Addario XL Pure Nickel

Classic electric guitar string tone dates back to the 1950's when pure nickel was the primary alloy used. As the need for brighter tone and higher magnetic strings grew in the 60's, nickelplated steel became the industry standard. D'Addario XL strings feature nickelplated steel, but D'Addario's new XL Pure Nickel strings offer a warmer, vintage tone alternative which many enthusiasts prefer.
