Would anyone care to comment on martin strings?
My basic string set is MSP 4200 Phospor Bronze.
That's what is recommended and what I normally use.
I experimented with comparable Elixirs, which I liked on an old Ovation, but found to be "kinda dead" on my D-16 (although they did seem to brighten up a bit after about three days).
I'd like to continue experimenting (safely) and am intrigued and confused by the "silk and steel mediums" as well as the SP+ (which, from reading, seem suspiciously similar to Elixirs).
I am interested in getting max volume from barefinger picking (who isn't) as well as reducing finger squeak.
I would actually like to hear from barefingerpickers who use either coated strings or non-bronze.
A really interesting thread a few weeks ago focused on shaving the neck to improve comfort; additional thoughts on this would be appreciated.
