What is Fusion Matched?:
Fusion Matched is the trademarked proprietary method that combines the highest quality, 100% made in the USA wire & 100% USA workmanship to produce strings with exacting core to-wrap ratios & tolerances.
Nickel Plated Strings:
Nickel-Plated Steel wound strings were introduced in the late Sixties and have become the most popular alloy for electric guitars and bass. Nickel-plated steel tends to offer the most balanced tone.
Nickel Wound strings are created by wrapping Nickel-Plated Steel alloys around a hex-shaped core wire which is made from tin-plated high-carbon steel (same as plain strings, but hex-shaped). The core-to-wrap ratio is the combined diameters of the core wire and the wrap wire which creates the overall diameter of the string.
