Just got a new ESP LTD B205 from Sam Ash and it came with Cleartone strings. I had no idea what strings it had on it so at the check out I told the sales person I should go ahead and get new strings and he said that it came with Cleartone and they were very expensive so I thought if they were expensive they must be good right? Well wrong...Also got a new Hartke A100 to use only in the studio never live. Man these string suck... The tone is really good but sustain is really dead. Like playing the old "black" coated strings. Any one had good luck with this combo? Cheers.
