    I like to use the same strings on every instrument to compare best, it gives me a base to work from. These strings are easy to get, work fine, and are inexpensive.

    The strings are very comfortable to play. Despite the pleasant tension they have the powerful sound of high tension strings. The sound can easily be formulated. The harmonics are very clear and the colors are unique!
