These strings are pretty darn good and were the main strings on my 55-94 for years. I'm the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" kind of guy and thought the volume and tone inconsistencies between the strings were a technique issue. The G string is more harsh sounding (upper mids) and the B string is much louder and woofier than the rest. GC didn't have them stocked one time and I ordered a set of La Bella Rx strings and was pleasantly surprised. Similar price range as well.
