Fantastic Strings... They sound great, they're nice and bright with a clear core fundamental tone. They also feel quite smooth for Round Wounds and the tension is perfect. I can certainly hear the difference with these Balanced Tension strings, they are more dynamic and the tone regardless of which string or fret is played is even and consistent.
Perfect gauges for those who, like me, downtune past Drop D. Just wish they made them in stainless steel!
