Finally got round to changing strings. Not changed them in so long. I have tried a few different slinkys, standard, super and power. I think the standsrds are the ones for me but a while ago i purchased some rotosound yellows (same gauge as standard slinkys) but these are british,a apparently do i thought i’d give them ago. Apart from the new string feel, they seem very similar to slinkys. Will see how they go. One good thing is each pack has an extra high E string, which i thought was good. Anyone else tried these?
The Roto Yellows are on my list from a Paul Davids comparison on you-tube that was fairly well done. I didn’t listen to what he said so much as just put on headphones and listened.
They came on sale here in the US, so I bought a set.
The extra high E is genius! The extra one I keep on hand I had to buy individually from my local shop.
I use these all the time. I think they are pretty good.
It’s a good thing really, because it’s one of the few brands available in local music shops.
The only downside is that, because I rarely break strings, I have a collection of high-E strings that I will probably never use.
I settled on Rotosound strings for my electric guitars about a year ago. I used to buy D’Addario which is really good, but I can get Rotosound for about half the price and the quality isn’t worse. I typically buy the R10-2 package so I can change strings on both of my guitars at the same time, and it probably doesn’t have the extra E string (I can’t remember off the top of my head).
I’ll try Rotosound on my acoustic guitar as well, but I’ve got a D’Addario set to use before that. I’m curious how it will work out as I’ve used 12s but it’s an 11 set.
Bottom line here. Guitar strings are the price of a pint of beer. Buy loads of different types. Try loads of different types. Where else can you get loads of fun for around £5.
Using Rotosound Pinks ( 9-42) on my Tele which equates to super slinky’s and I think they are a bit brighter.
Trying the all nickel ones next…
The pub, apparently….
Not around these parts
Haha increasingly becoming the case up here too.
