Pyramid Strings

I liked the green hex pure nickel set but I really disliked the the round cores. I recently tried the new monels which are round core also and I liked the tone but again I hated the feel. The inconsistency of the intonation was what I couldn't deal with. They are expensive but I just can't see spending that much for a string that at times just won't intonate.

the monels feel good to me, but they are perhaps a tad stiffer than some other strings (not a major issue though). All the monel strings I've tried have intonated well, but I needed to reset the intonation on the wound strings the first time I installed monel classics. The reason for this is that Pyramid often uses a thinner core than other string manufactureres

THANKS to you guys, I ordered a couple of sets of Pyramid Nickel Classics (.010-.052) for my Gibson LP. They are stonkingly good, lovely to play (OK, I've only used them for one night, but I couldn't put the damn thing down) and I am an instant fan.
Give them tomorrow, then I'm ordering several more. And I also ordered some Pyramid picks and a set for my Martin D28. How come Germany is so good at so many things?
Thanks you!
:love:
Germany is awesome.

I’ve been using the Pyramid Nickel Classics on my guitars for about 10 years. As long as you have clean fingers (you should!) these strings last for a long time.

I usually get them from Strings & Beyond in about 2-3 days.
