..steve's music carries them. as far as i know, steve's music is the only store that carries acoustic strings that have a coating on all six strings (DR).Just trying out some DR "Rare" acoustic strings 11-50. Impressed with their tone, considering their thinness... The guitar in question is in open-E.
I'll be getting the 12-54 set if see them.
Totally diggin' the DR's though. Only have an hour or two of serious playing on them, so we'll see how they hold up - but very nice so far. I've used their electric strings off and on for a few years now, but this is my first venture into their acoustics.
Best line I every heard was from an area rep to the owner of a local music store. "Coated strings? They just sound dead longer."
Ooooh, Lolli! I hadn't heard of those D'Addario blue grass strings? I'm going to give them a try. They sound like the perfect balance between mediums and lights. Thanks! :smile:I'm playing D'Addario mediums (.013 - .056) on my D-40 and D'Addario bluegrass (.012 - .056) on my L09K. I just switched to the bluegrass strings for my L09K and I really like the tone I am getting. They provide a little more ooomph on the bottom while ringing nice and bright on the top.
The difference is that the E, B & G strings are .012 .016 &.025 vs 0.13 .017 & .026 for the mediums. Light on top...mediums on the bottom.
