I put a set of henSe 500 MT without the Carbon G as it turns out they stopped making them. They had one set left only. So I tried the set with the nylon G. They have been on the guitar for two days. They are pretty much stretched in. I can play for fifteen minutes before anything goes amiss. They are clear like D'Addario in the trebles, but warmer. G doesn't seem to be any any more tubby than D'Addario. The basses are darker, which sounds good on my spruce top. They we're $6.99 a set. We will see how they sound in a couple of weeks.petermc61 wrote:A couple of years ago, I thought they were ok without being spectacular. From memory I thought the G was tubby. They seem to have a set with a carbon G, you might be better trying that is the other strings are the same. Maybe ask SBM if they are.
I'm not a big fan of EJ45 so it doesn't take much to be me more exciting than them.
Yeah I think these will be good replacement for the rather bland D'Addarios. And yes the action on the bass side came up as you say, nearly .4mm and that's ok because we are still less than 10/64th which is still less than 4mm. When I set up the guitar originally I set the action at 8/64 on the bass side and 7/64 on the treble side with D'Addarion EJ45, which sounded ok on this guitar. You know how it is, once you change to a different kind of strings, your perfect set up may change.petermc61 wrote: ↑Mon May 01, 2017 11:05 pmThe action changed at the 12th fret by 0.4mm - equivalent to changing the saddle height by 0.8mm - just by changing brand of string? Have to say I just don't understand that and am sceptical.
More likely the true height was always half way between your two measurements and both figures just have measurement error.
It's good you like them as a cheap string that suits the ear is always welcome.
Holy! I gotta get one of those! 0.05mm that is great! How expensive we talking?
