hi! reading various threads about those strings, i couldn't figure out some things: first af all: are they "balanced" in both tension and sound? I love my TI JF344, but they're not so balanced and not so smooth, and after three years I'd like to change and try something different. I've used Chromes (too bright), Pyramid Gold (too muted), Labella (too stiff), Rotosound (rough...) and the new Fender (chromes...). my "needs" are smooth surface strings (Pyramid were perfect in that), thuddy-but-alive-sound (where the Pyramids lose) and I'd like to elude high tension. for the smooth surface, it seems that DRs are perfect, "glassy". but the tension? are they balanced or I'm going to play with stiffer D or G, and thing like that? how is the tension? being roundcore, I guess they are not siff, but compared to Chromes or TI? how is the sound, after all? someone says they are "modern with less "thud"", others wrote "dull, like putting a pillow on the amp" where's the truth? what I'd like is a thuddy sound, classic flatwound "fundamental" tone, and TIs are not giving me that. they sound perfect in a context like "beatles" or similar, all those sound Paul had with the Rickenbacker, "rubbery" and "singing" sounds. where to go? or in the end I'll better stick to my TI?
