I put these strings on and man, the tone just woke right up. Very bright sounding and loud. I assume that's from the purity of the steel.

Rotosound makes the best strings. They last longer than any other string I have played even coated ones. I love the feel of nickel strings and started playing GHS Burnished Nickel strings. After I became a Bare Knuckle Dealer, in the early days he bundled GHS strings with his pickups, but after awhile he stared bundling Rotosound yellows. I tried a pack and even though they were not the nickels (which are perfect electric guitar strings) they lasted pretty much just as long and sounded almost as good as the nickel strings.
