“I’ve been stringing my handmade basses with premium MTD Steel strings since 1994 and I have to say that bassists the world over have asked for Nickel Strings for a long time and I have finally found a string that meets our standards!” states Michael Tobias. “These new Nickel strings offer the player the dynamic response of Steel strings with the inherent warmth and feel players seek from nickel wound strings. We also are offering an exposed core “B” in a Nickel string – that’s pretty rare, actually”.
Ron Larcombe, President of Power Group Ltd. states, “With these new Nickel Strings, we have a complete string solution for the electric bassist – the classic MTD Steels and now the MTD Nickels. We feel so strongly about the quality of these strings we’ve re-designed the packaging to better reflect the “premium” position these strings will hold in the Market”.
