I have been experimenting with different strings lately trying to nail down my tone, but haven't quite found it yet. I have played flats, rounds, grounds, stainless steel and nickel plated, but one thing I haven't tried yet is pure nickel. I am looking for a warm round sound and want round wounds, the flats just never suited my playing style. The strings which have come closest for me are the DR Sunbeams. I like them but perhaps there is something better. Are pure nickels warmer sounding than nickel-plated, and do they get more magnetic response? And what brands are available, the only pure nickel I know of is Fender. Any experience or advise regarding the tone of these strings? These strings will be going on a Squire VM Jaguar project which is soon to be fretless.
