Great tone

I recently went from Ernie Ball to Pyramid, a great switch, great tone and feel.

After reading how ToneQuest Report uses these in their most discriminating tests, I had to try them. Now, months later, they continue to sound as good as the day I put them on. They will have to break or come unwound before I will replace them.

I put off trying these strings because of the high cost but once I tried a set I was hooked. They have a consistent tone and sound great much longer than the strings I was previously using. The higher cost is easly offset by the longer life. I use these .010" strings on my longer scale Fender guitars.

Nice Strings

These are very nice sounding strings. I have them on my Gretsch Tennessee Rose and my Les Paul, and they seem to work nicely within the character of each guitar - they sound already broken-in when new and seem to hold up well.

Pyramid Pure Nickel RW strings

Tried these on my 57RI Les Paul; got hooked practically immediately. Pyramids are (or will soon be) on everything I own. Excellent feel, tuning stability, and they do last. Love the way upper mids and highs come across--not strident and clanging; more bell-like. (For me) these sound like strings OUGHT to sound!

Just the best strings money can buy. They sound great, have the quickest break in time, and seem to last forever. I've never had one break on me and I beat the S**t out of my guitars and their strings. Once you try them , you'll never go back to anything else. They're the last strings you'll ever buy.

I read about these strings in Tone Quest and they're right! They're great strings. They sound excellent and they just feel good. Plus they last a long time.

They are the very best strings on the Earth today. The attention to detail, the tone and life are untouched by anything else made. From the Nickle round wound to the Gold Flat Wound - Guitar and Bass - bring the finest tone and sonic clarity to even the most modest instrument. I have been using them for seven years now and will be as long as I am around..

Absolutely the best available!

I love these strings! They may be a bit pricey but how much do you spend on your tone? These strings can make a mediocre rig sound great and a great rig sound like magic. Give 'em a try, you won't regret it.

"PYRAMID Strings are, as exactly as is possible, the same as they were in the late 50's and 60's. They are a super quality, premium string and may be considered expensive compared to the many economy brands on the market but give players the sound they have been seeking for years and last 4-10 times longer than most other strings. PYRAMID strings are actually an exceptional value in this light. Most important, however, is that they are the type of strings (construction, material, gauge and tone/timbre) that created the music and sound of the 50's and 60's in the first place. PYRAMID STRINGS ARE SIMPLY MORE MUSICAL! It is no secret that strings make the most rapid and radical change of almost any of the many factors that make up 'tone'. The spectacular musical tone and timbre of Pyramid strings is as a result of the finest materials being blended by masters of the string makers art. Pure nickel flat wounds and smaller core/heavier nickel wrap round wounds used to be available from several makers. This is no longer true! Expanding market demand for increased quantities of strings, faster production and lower prices, resulted in extinguishing the capability and desire to make these types of strings, among the world's string makers, for the most part. PYRAMID, in contrast, has made only the highest quality strings possible since 1850 and continues to do so today. PYRAMID Gold pure nickel flat wounds are the way flat wounds used to be! They give the player the ability to get exactly, some of the most famous and loved guitar and bass sounds/tones of all time. PYRAMID Maximum Performance pure nickel round wound strings are round wound that sing, combining brilliance with the warmth of pure nickel. Our Maximum Performance pure nickel round wounds are also about one third lower in tension that other strings of the same external gauge. This is the result of our use of smaller higher quality core wire and a larger diameter wrap of expensive pure nickel. This is what creates the superbly balanced and remarkable tone and timbre of these strings."
