hi there, can you guys please suggest some pure nickel strings for me.

they need to be kind of warm sounding for my alder jackson but must also be able to handle heavy metal.

soft feel and good for bending but with decent tension for fast palm mute riffing etc.

any suggestions? thanks

thomastik makes a great pure nickel set. i found the DRs a little weird sounding, and you get a lot of "bad" strings from their sets. i wouldnt give up on the sobs just yet tho.

Really? He's always been good about my orders, even about shipping me custom sets...



In any case, also try DR Pure Blues sets. Or hunt down some Pure Nickel D'addario XL's.

I'm currently auditioning a set of Gibson strings in my electric..



i did believe you. I will try snake oil brand strings again.

Hi Jojo,

We have literally a gazillion UK customers as it is right now so the
answer to your question is that we ship to the UK all the time!
Generally speaking postage to the UK runs $12 USD for 1-10 sets of
strings. So, I usually advise people "over the pond" to buy at least 6
sets to offset the shipping costs. All you should do in this case is
let me know which sets (and how many) you want & I'll send you out a
Paypal quote which you can send right here to this email address.
Cannot get any easier than that can it?

Best regards,
Dean Farley/SOB

Eric Johnson uses nickel rockers, and he could hear the difference between two different brands of computer if they were both in the next room.

Go with whatever you can get the best deal on. As long as it says 'PURE NICKEL' you'll be doing well.
