Creator: GJ

Creator Description:
Strings help a guitar find her voice, but so many other factors play a critical role in the sound and playability that strings may afford. The curvature of the fretboard, along with the height of nut and saddle, and to some extent the height of the fret; the choice wood and bracing, along with the general construction and stiffness of the sound board. Hence, light strings may feel like high tension cable on a poorly set instrument.
I play with nails, with a vestigial classical hand-position. I need light and brilliant strings, in order to promote both a comfortable fretting and a balanced sound between basses and trebles. After I experimented with a variety of string gauges before settling for this set. Also, I must add, I am religiously devoted to D'Addario strings as I find that they provide exactly the characteristics I cherish [An anecdote worth mentioning: once a gentleman sitting behind me on a plane asked me what strings I used for the guitar I was carrying. After I solemnly declared that I solely use D'Addario, he revealed that he was, in fact, the CEO of that string manufacturer, Mr. Jim D'Addario.]
