Thread Name: Guitar Strings: Elixir rant - THEY STINK!
Subject: RE: Elixir rant - THEY STINK!
I find Elixirs sound too 'spangly' for my taste. I really like the sound of D'Addario's 'silk & steel' strings, they're lovely and mellow, but alas they're a bit on the light side as well. I think they only make them in .11's, which is too light for me in standard tuning, and certainly too light for dropped tunings and DADGAD etc.

I think I'll check out them Newtones though.
