Lovely 12 string shimmer
Having experimented with various 12 strings over the years, I'm always looking to ease fretboard tension with lighter strings.
With that said, I've read alot of recommendations on silk and steel strings and though I'd give these a try.
The first thing to note is that these are very light to the touch, though surprisingly bright and producing a pleasant shimmer after installation.
The second thing to note is that these produce slightly less volume then standard strings, most likely due to the silk core.
All in all, I'd say the Earthwood Silk and Steel strings offer a very well balanced compromise between tension and performance.
ProsVery nice shimmer
Very little compromise on volume
Easy on the fingers
ConsSlight but noticeable trad-off in volume
