love the wound 3rd (G)
November 27, 2017
this is a great set with the wound third string as an improvement to the sound of unwound g strings. I mark it down to 4 stars just because the lightness of the winding on the 3rd string makes it less durable. I admit I was digging pretty good on the frets while enjoying the sound of that wound string when it came undone right at the 2nd fret. I also have more than normal fret wear on that string at that fret. What does that tell you? My touch is usually lighter but my habit is to prolong the sustain on that string by a "vibrato" bend, don't know how else to describe it. This is at least worth a try if you aren't satisfied with the unwound 3rd sound.
- the third string being wound sounds better to me and seems to me to have more sustain, also
