I've been trying different strings out for 1+1/2 years (non-coated). So far my feeling is that the GHS strings are consistently better than any other brand I've tried.
If I were to rank the three brands that I use, it would be:
The Gibson's sound great at first, then within a few days they start to drop off dramatically to the point where it's almost a waste of time to put them on. I also don't like the heavier gage G string, but I do like it on mando's that are weak in the low end. The D'addario's are pretty consistent and are a fair benchmark. The GHS's seem to be loud and lively and get my vote for the best sounding string. They also stay that way for a good amount of time. Any thoughts?
And now for today's weather....sunny, with a chance of legs
