Who uses them and what do you think?
What brands are you using?
I've got a set of the old label Fender 7150 on my Korean P. They sound good, very warm, but much quieter volume-wise than traditional nickel wounds. They work great with the aggressive Reverend pickup.
less volume? how much less?
It's kind of hard to quantify, but it's not massive, just definitely noticable.
Remember Nickel is not magnetic......A good Nickel Plated Steel final wrap, like LaBella Slappers, is a good option...It is would with Stainless first and then a final qrap of NPS...THe same goes for Carvins series that features Nickel..There is a lot to be said for the comfort of playing this kind of set vs. Stainless that acts like a rasp by the end of the gig.
"Nickel - Physical properties
Nickel is a silvery-white metal with a slight golden tinge that takes a high polish. It is one of only four elements that are magnetic at or near room temperature."
Some stainless steel formulations are magnetic, some are not.
I also use 7150s. That's the only string I've ever used on my G&L SB-2 so I can't speak to volume compared to others. They're plenty loud enough to make a signal, that signal goes all the way down a cable into my amplifier where it gets louder.
