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.
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.
@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.
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.
I changed my Hannabachs (815 MT) after 2 weeks, since the D string was destroyed at the frets (to much pressure). With Savarez Corum basses I cope better (5 weeks). So for now, until I improved my technique (less left hand pressure) I won't buy them again (I still have a new set of 815 LT (green) sitting). As you wrote the Hannabach trebles sound were very nice. But I have issues with their tension. I would call it murderously
high for a MT. The Alliance (red) played much easier. Many passages I struggled with Hannabach played reasonably ok with the Alliance trebles. I attributed that to tension, but looking at your input, it might be "slipping".
If you had the Hannabachs 6 weeks I think the process of loosing slipperiness is done. If you still didn't like it, then it is not for you, at least for now, with you current playing technique.
