  1. I found these on the internet for $13... I'm been looking for some heavier strings, and the E is .110 Can anyone tell me a little about how they sound? I figure for $13 I might try them out anyways...

    I haven't tried that guage, but if you like nickels, you should like Ernie nickels. I've used them in .045-.105, and found them to be both deep and bright. Pretty thumpy, too.
