    Just purchased these strings, cause I read they had a bright tone which I like. They are also the perfect gauge for me. What are your thoughts? Are they bright?
    Thanks!

    Also are they coated with something? Like some slimy stuff or something? I think I saw that somewhere just understanding what they feel like also

    They are not coated with anything, they just have a very rough feel....which also gives them their bright sound.

    I put them between as rougher than DR SS strings, not as rough as Rotosound SS steel strings, and not as rough as Prosteels.
