Extra Light gauge - .010 .014 .022 .028 .038 .050
Silk and Steel
Manufactured in New York.
Extra Light gauge strings usually sound best on long scale Selmer style guitars (670mm or longer) with higher action.
Most Selmer style tailpieces will take both loop end or ball end strings. There is no difference in sound or playability between the two.
Pros: sound and feel
Cons: g wears out and breaks easily
For my guitar I haven't found better sounding strings and I tried many different sets. I use the extra lights and never feel high e is too light which I did with other types and would sometimes replace it for .11 (I tried many .11s sets but feel they don't let the guitar top breath enough). They bring the best out of my guitar, very warm and loud but not harsh with well defined bass. They last me a long time because I like the sound of older strings which helps with somewhat higher price. I keep spare wound g's because windings can break easily over frets but doesn't happen with every set. Couldn't be happier with the sound though.
