...i've been using the elixir anti-rust (all six strings are coated). they last forever.camer138 said:right now im using d'darios, i find that ghs strings break really easily.. what do you prefer?
I've been hearing a lot about these. Are you importing them? After shipping and duty and whatnot what are you paying per pack? Where are you getting them from? Thanks.J S Moore said:Snake Oil nickel strings. Great bluesy tone out of them. I haven"t tried the rock formula.
I am thinking about carrying them, but at the moment I don't. I buy three packs at a time and haven't had any issues coming across the border. $8.50 per pack and $3.50 shipping (US).

That said, I must sweat acid or something, because every string I touch (no matter what brand, it's my fingers) gets all black and shit, so I have to clean them everyday after playing.
Hey, thanks for the info... I was always curious about that but never thought to ask while I was at the doctors.david henman said:...acidic perspiration. my doctor tells me its the downside of a healthy immune system. i can't tell you how many guitars i've lost to extreme corrosion - all the metal parts just sieze right up.
give the elixir anti-rust series a try.
