I expected the coating to make them last longer.
September 1, 2021
I mostly use Elixir strings, as I have what they call, "Acid Hands" but Elixir's are back ordered everywhere, so I've been on a mission to find other good coated strings that last. These only lasted me one show before they were dead. Kinda neat to see the A and E strings as actual phosphor bronze instead of a steel string.
If you are looking for long lasting strings, check out D'addario's XS line. They are the 2nd best I have found. These DragonSkin strings sounded fine and would work for most players.
