Pyramid Monel Classics Light 09-42 Back finally again after decades of being forgotten by other string manufactures. Monel is a unique metal that bridges the gap between Pure Nickel and Nickel Plated wound strings. Until early 70s nearly everyone used either Pure Nickel Wrapped wound strings or Monel Wrapped wound strings. Sadly the trend went towards the much cheaper to produce Nickel Plated Steel wound strings and this trend went hand in hand with the use of Hex Core wire being used with this. These were done mainly to aid in streamlining production of guitar strings as the demand grew. Most companies forgot about Monel wire in the process. Now Pyramid is proud to announce the return of a true Monel Wrap wound strings. Monel is less compressed sounding, has more Snap & Spank and imparts lovely upped midrange aspect that is incredibly musical. If you are looking for an alternate to the wonderful sounds of Pure Nickel, then the Monel Classics are probably just what you need. Relive those great tones of the 50s & 60s with Monel Classics that will take you into the 21st century. Like the legendary Pyramid Nickel Classics, these feature wound strings of Monel Steel (67% Pure Nickel, 23% Copper & 10% Iron) delivers more energy. The Core wires and plain strings are silver plated German Steel and should last 5-6 times longer than other brands. Take yesterdays tone into the Present & Future. Gauges: 09-11-16-24-32-42
