Pyramid Maximum Performance strings are hand wound from pure nickel, producing a brighter sound than Pyramid's Nickel Classics strings.
The Maximum Performance strings are more pliable than normal strings, and they sound louder and bending is easier, just as the strings made in the 1950s and 1960s. The ringing tone and sound is different from the low-cost, mass-produced strings. Pyramid manufactures these strings with thinner high quality middle wire and thicker (more expensive) nickel rods and of course, they are handcrafted. These strings are a combination of the best materials and the best handwork.
