For a while I was just swapping the E for an .011, but for the last year or two also the B for a .015. It’s a hassle and I have piles of single strings here. How many people are in the same boat?
I used to for a while. Then I decided it shouldn't be up to the string but up to me.
In the uk you can buy 6 singles for the same price as a set. I wonder if Savarez have thought of making the hybrid sets. They seem to be so popular. I just stick to regular 10’s myself. I really don’t like anything else other than Argies. Ive only tried d’addarios and Galli though.
Yeah, I did it for awhile. Found some Savarez singles for $1 a piece and stocked up. Like, Buco, I eventually decided on technique over gauge.
I started using 10s again and couldn't be happier with the tone I'm getting. Haven't had any issue with the E or B strings either.
Depends on the action -- slightly too low and I have trouble with the 010 string. So I usually use an 011 with a light string set. The B string 014 doesn't present a problem for me, though.
Instead of an 011, sometimes I would use an 0105 -- in between!
Has anyone tried using "normal" acoustic strings on the e and b. They are probably the same and you can easily get singles from a local guitar shop.
The loop issue aside of course.
Yeah, I use them all the time, same thing.
Can’t count how many times I replace the snapped high E 10 gauge, and replaced with a B string from my Ernie Ball super slinky electric guitar sets ....which is an 11
I thought so. I've never needed to do it on my del Arte. But have used "electric" e and b's on my archtops.
Thanks for the reassurance!
