I am not sure how long you made the acessment after putting on the strings. You should allow several days for the string to stabilise before make your conclusion. Strings undergo a significant change of sound and tone within the first few days after you mount it and play on it.marymezzo wrote: ↑Sun May 14, 2017 2:50 amOK, recent thoughts about the G string.
I tried the silverwound G .024 D'Addario and liked it very much indeed. I'd say it and the Aranjuez wound G are quite similar in sound, but I believe the D'Addario is cheaper, so I may switch.
I also ordered an aluminum Savarez Concert 577R and didn't like it at all. In my not-so-humble opinion, it had rather a dead sound. Certainly no improvement on a conventional nylon G.
Ordered the Knobloch carbon G and haven't tried it yet. I'll report when I do.
