.040-.100 set preferable, just need to be bright and last long. Thanks.
I'm thinking of buying a few packs of D'addarios.
DR High Beams
Prosteels, brightest and longest lasting strings that I've tried.
That's exactly what I'm looking at.
One key thing to keeping strings bright IME is to wipe them down after each use- keeps the oils from your hands and/ or sweat from eating them (I have very acidic ph, probably my coffee addiction).
I use DR high beams 40-100 on my 4 string fretted.
Sadowsky Strings SBS 40 Blue last quite long. Longer than Fender, D'addario or GHS.
DR HiBeams. May not be as bright as other steels, but they last a lot longer and hold the brightness they do have. And if you've never used a round core string, you're in for a treat. Keep in mind they are lower tension than other strings, so you may actually want to get a standard 45-105 set.
