Hmmm ...

Maybe there is a business opportunity for the "Peter & Ramon" for string consultancy. PR Strings for Happy Guitarists !!
Although seeing as they do the work free, the business plan make need some work.
Free for everybody else. Not free for me!!!

I just put on the sterling silver med. Gauge Basses.
On a Larrivee 1980 spruce/eir guitar.
Seem rather dark sounding compared to the exp daddario I
Usually use...will let them settle in and stretch out a little before

Sorry for never replying to my original post, and thank you for all the replies.

I am so thrilled at the lifespan of these strings. It's unbelievable. I don't wear strings quickly, but this set has lasted longer than any I can remember.
What can this strange device be?
When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
It's got wires that vibrate and give music
What can this thing be that I found?

Yes, the Sterling, for sure. Immediately apparent difference.

Simon, the "Super Classic Sterling Silver" strings are on page 19 of the German language pdf catalogue.
Correct. The Sterling Silver are a more expensive string than the Double Silver, and worth it.

The string-fest continues, I put a set of Pyramid SS basses on. They're paired with Augustine Classic Trebles.
It feels right, easy to play, smooth strings. There's a quality feel to 'em. Intonation is about as good as it's been on this guitar between the Pyramids & Aug. Classics. On my guitar, the D is brighter, the A & E a bit more muted. They have a lot of sustain and I think they carry. They sound good but they're a bit muted on my guitar. I'm not really a big thumbnail guy, somebody with nails could probably coax a brighter tone from these strings in general. All things considered relatively low tension according to the back of the package...proofreader was probably out that day, "E,B,D,G,A,E". I'm probably moving on but I wanted to try them. YMMV of course.
