Shorter lifespan with nickel strings?

    Im not sure if it is just me, but nickel strings tend to die faster than their ss counter part whenever I use them.

    example sunbeams compared to sunbeam or hi beam.

    Or maybe I just hate the sound of dead nickels compared to dead ss, Im not sure.

    Different strokes for different folks. :)
  3. i get this impression too.
    stainless steel to me sounds great even a few months later whereas when nickel starts to die they sound yuck.
    do they really die faster?
