Put these on 7/21/12. Initially they sounded great: loud and sparkly. I got that sitar sounding twang on G string that I loved! High E sounded very tight, like would you'd hear from .011 string but without higher tension, best of both worlds. Bass strings didn't have that squiggle when you bend it, that I feel on Argies which I guess comes from a round core. So I though I found a perfect set of strings.

Put these on 7/21/12. Initially they sounded great: loud and sparkly. I got that sitar sounding twang on G string that I loved! High E sounded very tight, like would you'd hear from .011 string but without higher tension, best of both worlds. Bass strings didn't have that squiggle when you bend it, that I feel on Argies which I guess comes from a round core. So I though I found a perfect set of strings. But then a week later after maybe 3 practices at home of couple hours each on average and one band practice the winding broke on G string and it's dead with a buzz, not that cool sitar buzz but a dead string with broken winding buzz. Normally I'll have a set of string on for a couple of months but I'm putting a different set today, 7/31/12. Maybe it's just a random bad pack but at what they cost + shipping I can't afford to give them another try even with all of their advantages or go through at least 2 sets a month.
