I tried a set a year or so ago and couldn’t stand them. I literally took them back off within minutes. They felt so bad, I couldn’t make myself give 'em a chance. I don’t remember how they sounded, but I just couldn’t get over the feel. I can’t really describe it. You’ll just have to see for yourself.
You may like them and so may someone else. I don’t want to discourage others from trying something that may be good for them. I love trying different strings and picks and I’ll try about anything at least once. I was skeptical about the TR Monels. Everyone I talked to (at music stores that sold them), were negative about them, so of course that inspired me even more to try a set for myself! I’m glad I did, I think they’re great.
Put 'em on, see what you think. DR makes good strings, those just weren’t for me. What does your friend think of them?
