    Hey I been Playing the 145,107,80, 60, 45, 32 set. its seems a bit too tight for my likeing. 145 is good for my Metal but I need some for Blues. I want my string B string to be a 135(Partly Because. I have too sets laying around in my room) one dead sounding the other fairly new. Any Ideas for the 135 set?

    Well, when it comes to balanced tension there's obviously the Circle K .136 balanced tension set - I use it and it's flexible without being floppy.

    I've also looked at what gauges to use to build a balanced set of Daddarios from single strings, using their tension charts - based on a .135 B, you'd want .100, .075, .055 and .040 for the most balanced set.
