So I was wondering how to tame my strat's bridge pickup. I've tried a custom wiring to put the tone control on the bridge, and I was pretty curious about how pure nickels would sound like on it. So I grabbed a set of the Fender Pure Nickel 150s, strung my strat up after I'm done with the rewiring, and I'm blown away. For once, the bridge didn't sound like it's trying to kill my ears. I've heard many saying they sound dull or dark, but my personal experience was that they are just marginally warmer than NPS and probably hit the tonal sweet spot for me! I guess its safe to say I'm converted. I'm probably getting another set of pure nickels for my SE the next time around and see if they would work for metal/hard rock, since people stereotype them to be blues/jazz/classic rock strings.
Anyone here fiddled with pure nickels or swear by them all the time?
