Re: Elixir Strings
In a message dated 99-10-26 12:37:20 EDT, you write:
They do last a long time, though. Almost absurdly so. >>
I'll chime in here. I use the Elixirs on guiatrs I don't play much, i.e.
that old acoustic, that Korean Les Paul I've got for living room fun, etc.
those two guitars, the Elixirs have been on for over a year, and they
feel good and you don't have to apologize when you pass the guitar to your
guests. But I simply prefer the DR nickel sound on my main ASAT, but
good sounding/long lasting combination is Tomastik-Infeld (sp?) I've been
amazed by those. They have gold colored high strings. I've had them on a
well-used electric (every two days of playing) since mid-August. They are
tonally only somewhat tired, but still feel very good.
