That's most likely the answer to my question above! Checked my Aristona SN NT set yesterday and the Carbon G3 feels significantly softer than the Nylon B2 and E1! So it looks like Aristona SN string feature a Carbon third as standard! Just wonder why Dr. Junger is reluctant to disclose that, provided I'm right of course!
Nevertheless I couldn't avoid to slap them on my ten string yesterday evening, my main guitar recently!
The first impressions are: Much softer than 10PH/815LT (reminds me of Dogal 127b), stabilize quite fast (incl. G3), very excellent (!!!) G3 string (probably the best I tried!), well balanced in tone and tension but with a significant drop in volume. I'm not thrilled but their actual performance defintily justifies to wait how they develope over the next days!
The crosswound A5 and E6 have a very smooth and pleasant feel and are IMO a very nice alternative for anti-/low-squeek strings. Not as lively as the conventional wound D4 but well contoured and by no means "muddy". HB's have more "weight" but that could be a volume issue and might change over time.
Regardless of this I will transfer the test on my Kohno next week as I suspect the ten string was not be the best choice for this?!
