Not a replacement for Pyramids
November 13, 2019
I was looking for an American made string with the same construction as pyramids, round core and pure nickel wrap. This is on a les paul type guitar. The wound strings are good but the plain ones are not. As compared to pyramids they sound thin, lack sustain, and feel loose.

Maybe they work better on a longer scale guitar?

Round Core String Installation

Round Core strings need to be tightened or tuned prior to cutting the wire. For slotted tuners you can make at least a 90 degree bend/crimp in the string before cutting and installing.
