Recommended Posts

Really.... :unsure: (barrel, bottom, scraping?)

Make a fundamental piece of his full, warm tone yours by winding up a set of Voodoo ChildTM Strings, with Jimis signature heavy-high, light-low gauge setup. Easy to bend and full of the magic that was the source of his sound, these strings are a painstaking recreation of Jimis beloveds. Move over Roverand let Jimis strings take over.

 

.010, .013, .015, .026, .032, .038

.010 is a heavy high? How about SRVs .012? Try bending that like your life depended on it...

Only compared to the bass strings... 10s are pretty much the standard for most people on the high end.

Yes Jimi did play with those gauges, 0.10 to 0.38 tuned down to Eb. The Fender set he used was 3150R Super Bullets.

 

I tried them myself several times, very good to play. I even kept the front paper of the last packet I bought and still have it.
