GHS Nickel Rockers are special. Since 1964, Nickel Rockers™ have provided discriminating guitarists with the PURE NICKEL sound of original rock n' roll and the warm tones of blues and jazz. The unique GHS rollerwinding process slightly flattens the strings for a smooth, comfortable feel with a "touch" of extra tension.

I have played every string brand under the sun (and the moon) in 45+ years of professional playing. But for almost a decade now I am using Nickel Rockers on all my electric guitars, R+RXL/L for Rock, R+EJL for Jazz and R+EJM for my downtuned guitar. I love that extra tension on the lower strings, the feel of of the rollerwounds (much less finger noise too...) and the tuning stability. Plus they last a lot longer than 'normal' roundwounds (sorry, GHS). The only fly in the ointment: they are sometimes hard to get here in Australia
