New pickups...? No, just M-Steel strings.
June 19, 2022
I put a set of these on my Epiphone Les Paul Standard a few weeks ago, and it sounded like I put new pickups in my guitar. My Epi has the original Probuckers, which I like a lot. They are vintage output, fairly bright, versatile pickups. I had been using Slinkys Pure Nickel, gauged 9-46, on this guitar, and was pretty satisfied overall, but when I put on the M-Steels I was spoiled. The output of these strings is so loud, and the tone so full, that it sounded like I had swapped the Probuckers for a DiMarzio Tone Zone Neck and Super Distortion at the bridge. These strings are that powerful. They also have the reinforced wrapping at the ball end of the plain strings, which I also like very much, as I do a lot of heavy bending. I have now had these strings on my Epi for several weeks. I estimate that I've got about twenty hours of play on them, with a lot of deep bending, and they are still going strong. I think I've found my new favorite strings for solidbody guitars.
High output and wider frequency response, just as advertised. Reinforced plain strings. Good tone life so far. None so far.
