Interesting. I put on the same Savarez trebles on on Friday and find them slippery - I expect, with a bit of practise I can adjust. To me, they feel more slippery than the Hannabach, so exactly the opposite from you. But as I wrote this is not a direct comparison, since I had a set of Alliances in between.fraim wrote:i've also just put the "new cristal"---500cr trebles nt. so far i'm not having the same problem of slipperiness. i didn't know that the hb strings would lose that slipperiness the longer they were on. i changed all 6 strings after about 6wks of 2+hrs a day of practicing because the bass strings were sounding very flat. i'll admit that the trebles sounded good still but i was tired of my pinky slipping off.joachim33 wrote: Which Savarez? I just changed from Savarez Alliance trebles to "New Cristal" trebles and find these slippery. Alliance is rougher. I had Hanabach 815 MT (black) before. I found these trebles very high tension but do not remember them being particularly slippery.
@robin...thanks for the bit of education in explaining "rectified". i have hb basses on my main guitar & have a full set on my 2nd guitar , which only gets played about 1/3 the time but haven't noticed a problem with the d string. something to remember though.
I have tried Savarez 520R (recified), 500AR (Alliance) and 510CR (New Cristal) trebles. To the best of my knowledge, the Alliance trebles are not rectified (which means ground into shape). The surface of the rectified 520R trebles is very rough. They squeak a lot when I change position. The Alliance trebles are definitely rougher than the "New Cristal" or D'Addario Nylon trebles but not as rough as the rectified trebles. Alliance do not squeak very much - I would say not at all.robin loops wrote: About the slipperiness: Doesn't bother me. For future reference, when the strings have a rough matte like finish they are called rectified. Some people have a preference for or against them but I find if I give them time I can get used to either. For some people non rectified can be a little quieter when sliding up or down the string.
