Hey all, I am so bummed, Dean Markley appears to have stopped making their Vintage Reissue 1973 (regular gauge) electric strings. I have tried many others which I can't recall, and NONE of them compared to the warm, bright tones I get with these.

If anyone knows what I am talking about (Gary Rossington - Skynyrd used these I think), and knows of some other strings which have similar tone, please clue me in.

I really don't like the tones of new coated strings or anything similar. Those things sound dead outta the box.

Thanks for your help.

Any round-core nickel plated steel strings should do the trick, but there aren't so many strings like that available at the moment. I found DR tite-fit strings had a very similar tone and feel, but I don't think the gauges are the same.

But yeah, the important thing to look for is the round core, but a lot of round core strings have pure nickel windings, which won't sound as bright.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
