View Full Version : Pyramid vs. TI Blues Sliders???
07-20-2011, 03:39 PM
any thoughts for my strats and PAF'y guitars?
loved the sadowsky nickels for their slinkiness and lasting feel, but roger stopped offering a lighter guage. using ghs burnished, but they die about as fast as the dr pure blues they replaced.
figured i bite the bullet and go back to the expensive pyramids, which did last a long time for my hands, and were almost worth their hefty price tag. but how do the blues sliders fare?

Pyramid nickel rounds are just exceptional strings. I have yet to try the Thomastik's.

I have never used Pyramids, but I have used TI Blues Sliders--a lot, over many years, on both single-coil and humbucker guitars. They are my favorite electric string, next to flat-wound TI Jazz Swings. However, the Blues Slider wound strings are not slinky. The low E from a set of .10s is .48, and the tension of the wound strings is comparable to that of a set of D'Addario .11s. Extraordinary strings, really.

Pyramids are great. I am currently trying them out and I like them so far.

You can't go wrong with either. I usually stick with Pyramids because Sliders are usually a bit more expensive. Both great strings though!

I use the Thomastik Jazz Swings (Nickel Flatwounds) on my guitars. I like them a lot.
I've got pyramid nickel flatwounds on my bass and they are great, too.
Haven't used the specific strings you've mentioned, though.

I've just started using Pyramids. I'm really liking them, so much in fact the price is starting not to bother me so much.
