    Ever had a set of roundwounds that were just way too bright sounding for you? I have. D'Addario Heavy Prosteels and Washburn lights.
    My E string sounded practically like a piano when I first played it after stringing up.

    That's what I go for. Maybe, you and steel rounds aren't meant to work together.

    Dean Markley Blue steels and GHS contact cores. I love them both, but neither is a good fit for my current project:(

    The new Elixir strings. I don't know if they are brighter than the Blue Steels and Rotos or if they are just the wrong kind of bright, but I didn't care much for them.

    There's no such thing as "too bright", those are just called "perfect steels". ;)
