PYRAMID Gold 12-string Guitar Strings, Pure Nickel Flat Wound

This is heaven for 12-string players, a night and day difference!

They are very bright pure nickel flat wounds with absolutely remarkable musical qualities. They do produce a percussive sound upon attack with a pick as flat wounds do. They are just amazing strings that take 3-4 days to arrive their final best tone and timbre and then stay that way for an unreasonably long long time.

These strings produce the same sound as the most loved 12 string sounds made by British and American pop groups of the 60ᄡs.They are the same type of strings that made the music in the first place !

The strings are absolutely wonderful for all types of music, everything sound better than ever before !

With the flat wounds you can have lower action than is possible with round wound strings and also you get no finger noise !

Roger McGuinn, founder of 'The Byrds' - favours uses, and loves the Pyramid Gold pure nickel flat wound .010 - .0465, 12-string set !

The secret on recreating the true vintage tone is to use the pure nickel flat wound strings. The best 50ᄡs and 60ᄡs strings were pure nickel and flat wound. Pyramids are just like the strings The Beatles and other great bands and artist used in 50ᄡs and 60ᄡs. If you have tried the flatwounds made after early 70ᄡs, Pyramids are not a bit like those, most modern flatwounds are made from steel and sound very dull, nothing like the rich brilliant and musical tone and tibre of Pure Nickel Flatwound Pyramids.

PYRAMID strings are the highest possible quality , hand wound/made, and the result of 150 years of hand making string experience!!

PYRAMID strings are, as exactly as is possible, the same as they were in the late 50ᄡs and 60ᄡs. There is only one way to produce the finest strings, by hands. The difference is that hand wound made by master stringmakers are more flexible strings /more free to vibrate than any machine made string ever can be. No one has ever been able to make a machine that can duplicate what a master stringmaker can do by hand. Silk is wound around the ball end of each string. This silk effects the overtone structure of each string. This improves the harmonic structure of your guitar's tone by dampening unwanted harmonics that are generated on the string in the area between the bridge and the tail stop.

Extra care has been in designing the right core wrap ratios and the balanced set. In the .010-.0465 set there is a .0165 plain G3rd because the .0165 intonates better /properly more so than a .016 or .017 and it plays like a .016 but sounds like a .017, and the .0465 is just the right gauge for perfect low E, not 046 or .047.

PYRAMIDS are a suber quality, premium string and may be considered expensive compared to the many economy brands on the market but may give players the sound they have been seeking for years and last 4-10 times longer (round wounds 3-4X , the flat wounds 5-10X longer) than most other strings. PYRAMID strings are actually an exceptional value in this light.

Most important, however, is that they are the type of strings (construction, material, gauge and tone/timbre) that created the music and sound of the 50ᄡs and 60ᄡs in the first place.


It is no secret that strings make the most rapid and radical change of almost any of the many factors that make up 'tone'. The spectacular musical tone and tibre of PYRAMID strings is as a result of the finest materials being blended by masters of the string makers art.

Pure nickel flat wounds and smaller core/heavier nickel wrap round wounds used to be available from several makers. This is no longer true!! Expanding market demand for increased quantities of strings, faster production and lower prices, resulted in extinquishing the capability and desire to make these type of strings, among the worldᄡs string makers, for the most part.

PYRAMID in contrast, has made only the highest quality strings possible since 1850 and continues to do so today. PYRAMID Gold pure nickel flat wounds are some of the most favous and loved guitar and bass sounds / tones of all time. PYRAMID Maximum Performance pure nickel round wounds are also about one third lower in tension than other strings of the same external guage. This is the result of PYRAMIDᄡs use of smaller higher quality core wire and a larger diameter wrap of expensive pure nickel. This is what creates the superbly balanced and remarkable tone and timbre of these strings.

The Plain strings are a special alloy-silver plated. They are different for any American make. They ring like bells and make a beautiful sound, a musical sound no matter how hard or soft you hit them. In contrast to most trebles that honk back at you with a very harsh and unmusical sound if you pick them really hard. PYRAMID trebles never do that--they sound great all the time.

Here might be the answer to your search of Holy Grail of Guitar Tone, the tone starts from strings, itᄡs the vibration of strings on your great guitar that is amplified by your dream amp.
