I have heard she uses nickels,anyone know the guage? Thanks in advance.
Sadowsky nickels. I don't know the guage.
Tal uses Sadowsky Black Label Nickel 40-100.
My thanks to you too, Mr. S.
Thanks Mr. Sadowsky and everyone. Does anyone know if these Bright nickels are pure nickel or nickel plated out of curiousity. I love her tone and I've thought it sounds too bright to be pure nickel. Thanks
maybe this thread will help:
What specific model does she play?
What sadowsky strings is she using lately?
Look like black or dark blue silks?
Wow, the Sadowsky Blacks are pretty high tension. Even a little stiffer than DR. Lo-Riders.
I like a little above average tension but the Sadowsky Blacks are just way too stiff for me.
Tal must have little fingers of steel.
Zombie thread back from the dead!
Anyway, yeah DR Lo Riders are not particularly stiff. Stiffer than the round core DR's, but not real stiff overall.
Tal uses light gauge strings, and I can only assume her Sadowsky is 34" scale, so it's probably pretty loose feeling.
Interesting. I tried both the Sadowsky Blues and Blacks. The Blues are just a bit too floppy for me and the Blacks are like air plane cables. But, I tried both in Medium gauge. Maybe the lighter gauge is the key. I love the sound of the Sadowsky's, but I like the little extra stiffness of the DR Lo-Riders, so I stick with the DR's for the most part. Always up for trying something new though. Always in search of the perfect strings.
