    Steels are brighter sounding
    Nickels smoother and warmer sounding
    Nickels are less shiny looking to me.

    >>> Technically the Rotosound 77 flatwounds are made of an alloy called Monel. It's primarily nickel, with some copper and iron thrown in the mix. It is supposed to be extremely resistant to corrosion. The Rotosound flats are very different from other flatwound strings. You might like them, you might not. I'll string up a bass with them occasionally...
