Well, I just finished shaping a new adjustible bridge and now I plan to install new strings on my little Kay M-3 (1/4 size) this weekend. I play in a blues band and I won't be using a bow. I am looking for a warm tone, as "gut-like" as possible from steel strings. I am thinking D'Addario Helicores or Thomastik Spirocores would be good choices but I am asking for recommendations because I'm sure there are other choices which have eluded me. I am not fond of Red Labels, Stellars or "weedwacker" strings. I am somewhat limited in my choices because of the instrument's size. What strings would you recommend? Thanks in advance for your help!
