D'Addario Electric Guitar Pure Nickel Jazz, .012 - .051, EPN21
These are a good strings. I used them on my Nyl2 D'Angelico and the sound was improved from just using nickel plated. I will definitely use them for this guitar.

I've been using the EJ21 strings for about 10 years, and these EPN21s are a definite improvement.

Not only is the tone more substantial, but the set is balanced better with the wound strings being slightly lighter than the EJ21s.

I'll be using these from now on. I play an archtop jazz guitar, and these strings bring out the best in it.

I like these strings for rhythm, chord/melody, jazz and vintage rock sound of the '50's and 60's. It's what was available in those days but heavier gauges compared to those to later days - lighter gauges available now. They are a little warmer sound than the nickel plated and a little brighter than the nickel flatwounds which where only available in the early days too. times changed after the mid-60's i.e. Ernie Ball Slinkys.

I like these strings for rhythm, chord/melody and jazz they have a wound G (3rd) string. A warmer sound compared to nickel plated and brighter than nickel flatwound strings. I am glad D'Addario made a pure nickel set with wound G. These are the type of strings used even in rock music back in the 1950's and early '60's vintage sound - it was the only type they had available then, but you can buy them in a lighter guage these days where they didn't. You get that vintage sound of those years.

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.
