1 Gerry Ratrod 3 years ago The other day I broke a string on my Tokai Love Rock and I had no spares left.I thought it might be time to try something different, so I went shopping. I stumbled upon Pure Nickel (D'addario) and supposedly these strings would make the guitar sound more warm and mellow.This Love Rock of mine has high output ceramic pickups. This makes it sound a bit bright by Les Paul standards and a bit aggressive. It could use a bit of mellowing out.So I put a set of Pure Nickels on it and they do not disappoint. The highs are rounded off a bit more and the bridge pickup sounds like it went from 14K to 10.5K. It's way nicer with low and medium gain and it's still equally nice at high gain. Other than the rounded off highs there's no loss in tone or clarity either.This guitar became a lot more useable and likeable.
