Is there a difference between nickel wound and nickel plated strings? I see fender strings (250s) say they are nickel plated whereas other brands say nickel wound. Is this the same thing or are they different?
The labelling can be tricky, I think that you have to do a bit of research to be sure which are pure nickel and which are nickel-plated steel. They sound different, pure nickel is mellower than nickel-plated steel.
