    I know I'm the TI rep, but many players swear by our Acousticore series (AB344 & AB345). They're the only string I know of designed and EQ'd for for use with piezo pickups. The strings are phosphor/bronze rounwound on a nylon core. They do nothing with magnetic pickups, but WOW with piezo's. For online/mail order stores I suggest the following:
