Warmer tone, softer feel, slightly less tension
May 9, 2021
I love these nickel bronze strings. The tone is warmer, they feel softer to the touch & there's ever so slightly string tension, just enough that it's a little easier on the hands. I just put some J74s on again, after using these for a few months & they sounded brighter (I'm tempted to say harsher) & felt a little harder to play. The difference is real.
Pros
  • Warmer tone, softer feel, slightly less string tension. Cool retro look.
Cons
  • More than half again the price of basic phosphor bronze J74s.

Sharper tone
March 1, 2020
Loaded these onto a Weber Absaroka and I want to give them some time to set in. First impression is they are brighter, louder and sharper in tone than J74s or other phosphor bronze strings. I find the E a bit shrill but let's see how it goes after 5,000 miles.

Nickle Bronze for me
November 10, 2019
I really enjoyed the tone of these strings on my new Montana Lutherie mandolin. The tone was different from PB strings, not bad but deeper. I am still on the hunt for the perfect strings and these are in the top 3, so far.
Pros
  • They have a lovely tone.
Cons
  • Can't think of any
