I wish that I had discovered these along time ago... They provide me with a much more consistent fundamental tone and timbre all over the Fretboard... The E & A Strings sound just as bright and the same dynamically and sonically as the D & G. They feel really nice both in texture and tension. Also, another little bonus for me is that they have no ugly silk wrap..... I also discovered that each Set comes with an unique code for you to collect points towards merchandise and other goodies, so I'm very pleased with them.
Sounds very good, the balanced tension feels good and right and fairly priced.
