S.I.T. Strings High E13th Pure Nickel Wound 8-String Set for console or lap steel

Available Exclusively on behalf of The Steel Guitar Forum

"In the early days, most electric steel guitar strings were wound with an alloy called pure nickel. When the price of nickel rose dramatically in the 1960's, virtually all of the string manufacturers switched to the nickel plated steel that is commonly called "nickel wound" today.

By special arrangement with S.I.T. Strings, we have put together these pure nickel string sets for the steel guitarists who long to capture that sound and feeling of yesteryear. Our "high E13th" set is designed for the popular tuning used by legendary players like Don Helms (with Hank Williams) and "Little" Roy Wiggins (with Eddy Arnold). They are a bit on the heavy side too, for a rich, full tone."  ~ Bobby Lee, founder of the Steel Guitar Forum and 2010 Inductee in the European Steel Guitar Hall of Fame
