NICKEL STRINGS

VS

Overall difference of Stainless vs Nickel strings:  Stainless steel is the brightest alloy. They are best for slap bass and have a more cutting and aggressive tone. The initial brightness wears off as the strings age. Nickel strings are warmer, with a smoother feel to the finger tips. They are bright enough to cut through the mix and the tone stays consistent for a longer period of time. The best way to appreciate the differences is to try both on the same bass.

If you are looking for a string with a true vintage sound and feel that retains a strong fundamental to sit well in the mix, these are strings you definitely want to try out.
