    "For those of you who play one " , that leaves me out, (I dont own one) what is unsatisfactory with what you use now ?

    don't like nickel wound , try bronze or Monel ..

    Rigels were, at least for a time, strung up with John Pearse strings before leaving Vermont.

    EJ 74s are sounding good on my CT 110, but I’ll probably try some monels next. I had some John Pearse strings on my RM1 for a while and they were fine, but I think maybe the A strings were a little lighter than I like in their stock medium set? Not caffeinated enough to remember for sure, and too lazy to google it...
