Good strings but overpriced
August 28, 2013
Tried a set of 12's on my Seagull S.W.S. and was all around satisfied. I didn't have as much trouble as others seem to with intonation/staying in tune...... though I do pull on all new strings fairly hard when stringing my guitar and repeat a few times after tuning. Mostly, though, the projection seemed to die down more after a few weeks and they sounded rather flat to me. Other reputable strings like Curt Mangan and John Pearse seem to project and really sing in that 800-2000 hz range after a couple weeks. These ones, not so much. If they were half the price, I would keep a few sets around for an occasional change of tone. Otherwise, I don't think I'll spend the money on them again.
Pros:Loose tension. A little easier on the fingers. Bright tone and fairly balanced frequency response.
Cons:Cost. The middle frequencies start to fade out after a few weeks.
