  1. I know I more than likely won't be using thsoe considering that I use Smiths..I was still wondering, if anyone has tried 'em, how are the Hartke strings?

    Don't think they're public yet. Sent in my offer about 3 or 4 weeks ago, should be arriving soon. Will let you know.
     
  3. I've seen them in Sam Ash, I don't mean one or 2 sets, I mean boxes and boxes...and I see people eyeball them but don't purchase them..lol..

    Just joining the chorus of those who are waiting for their $3 strings to show up. I'll be watching this space and posting my impressions as well.

    Aluminum strings can't sound all that good, can they???
     
  7. We'll know when each of us that ordered the $3.00 set get ours in the mail!

    I ordered a set a few weeks ago and I'm still waiting too.

    Will post back when they arrive!

    How will they drive the pickups? I guess that they would work with piezos or Lightwaves!

    :D

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    Even Fender isn't out of touch or silly enough to offer aluminum strings, fellas. The .pdf file for the Hartke string offer shows the package that clearly says "nickel wound".

    My spider sense says that they're probably being made by D'Addario.

    ;)
