I had a full set of PEPSR on my guitar for over a month. My honest assessment is I that I found them underwhelming. The trebles seemed a bit bright and thin sounding for my liking. Basses were average. They held their tone for about a month. Personally, they were not worth the $13 price tag and there are sets for cheaper that I prefer more.
Good to know I'm not alone with this impression. The PR GLOW strings are so much different!!!

I put a set of PEPESR on yesterday. I had them on a cedar/walnut guitar before and was excited about trying them in my spruce/Swiss pear Michael Ritchie.
I’m afraid I’m disappointed. No arguing with the feel of the trebles, but they are a bit too thin sounding at times. The NT PR basses have what I think of as a ‘creamy’ sound and feel; the HT, on this particular guitar, don’t have the same smoothness that I like. At times they seem to have a sort of brittle punch.

Still - an excuse to try my next combo...
