What strings did you last buy and try...and why?
Well, I've been trying out a guitar(Spruce/EIR) for an extended period of time which I'll post up about at some point soon
and I've been trying tons of strings just because...EJ45s, EJ45LPs, Cantiga Basses, LaBella 2001 Medium Hards, New Cristal Trebles, Augustine Classic & Imperial Trebles, mixing & matching which brings me to this today: Ramirez MT Coated without the Carbon 3rd.
They've only been on a very short period of time but the bass strings seem very comfortable to play, sound nice, I guess they're coated, a bit less squeak. The guitar is set up with relatively low action and I think for me with the Ramirez trebles it was maybe playing a little too loose so off went the Trebles and I put on some Augustine Imperials. Those are kind of manly man compared to others, but easy to play. When you pick 'em - it's a solid note that comes out, no waffling around. It might seem unbalanced a bit with the Medium Ramirez Basses, could also be totally pyschological & I could adjust the way I play I dunno. I have a feeling they'll be coming off and Augustine Classics will be going on, skinnier but have good tension.
The default so far for me since I've had this guitar has been EJ45 Basses/Augustine Classic Trebles but I like these Ramirez. Oh yeah, I've got an unopened set of Pyramid Sterling Silver Basses, so I guess soon enough I'll need to see what that's about.
Blah blah blah blah blah...
