The blend of metals used in different common string types influences tone greatly. The ones we know best are round-wound, nickel-plated steel, such as Ernie Ball Slinkys, D’Addario XLs and so on.
Tonally they sit pretty much in the middle, flanked by the generally more expensive pure nickels that have a marginally more rounded, ‘vintage’ tone; and stainless steel that sound altogether hotter and brighter when new.
Flat-wound strings produce a more blunt, jazzy tone. Give them all a try to find what works best for you.
