Thread Name: Silk and Steel strings
Subject: RE: Help: Silk and Steel strings
When I used to own a tiny old Martin 2-17 I would string it with silk and steel. The sound was rich in tone but very quiet. I would use that guitar only when singing in a living room, or when practicing while someone else was trying to get some sleep. I eventually traded the 2-17 for a Martin 0-15 which I string with extra light gauge steel.
