Intriguing though limited review due to broken string
November 30, 2018
I was really looking forward to trying these out but ended-up breaking the dreaded 3rd string during setup. And so I couldn't fully experience these 12 strings and have ordered a replacement set.
With that said, and from what I've experienced these are very interesting strings, and look forward to trying the next set with all 12 strings.
The first thing I'd note is that these felt lighter than most other 12 string sets of the same tension, including the silk core variants.
The second thing to note is that they provided surprisingly good volume for such a light feeling set of strings. Though these did however present deflection under fretting. Which became especially apparent on the higher strings.
Beyond that, and with that little time I spent with these, I personally feel these strings to warranted a second try and more in depth review.
- Very nice tension for non silk core
- Above average sound/ shimmer
- Good volume
- Slight deflection with higher strings
- 3rd string broke during setup
