I have one of my Ibanez SRA305's strung with Labella Standard Gauge black tapes. They are becoming my favorite all-round string. The G string doesn't twang. The sustain from string-to-string to me is more even (rather than the G dying off first and the E & B hanging on until next Tuesday). Some folks think the sustain is not sufficient for the lower strings; for what I play, it is just right. The tone and feel is more even from string to string to me as well, as well as seeming to be a tad lighter overall than a standard 45-105 conventional set of rounds. About the only limitation I feel is that they may not be a first choice for pop-and-slap, but I don't do that well, anyway. The B string has surprisingly good articulation and presence. Overall, a very round, present, articulate sound, suitable for most genres, but without edge or twang.
