I've been using stainless steels for the last few years and I've just grown to hate them. The highs are so untameable when playing at any performance volume and using any fuzz/distortions makes them liable to rip my tweeter in half. I've just grown to hate the EQ imbalance, so I'd like to try some nickels that are a bit more mellow. Thing is, for most 7-string sets, they're all stainless steels. The Dean Markley set had my eye for a bit but I noticed they were steels. I was going to try Circle K strings but I think I remember reading that those were a hybrid and I'm afraid they will be too. I wanted to try the Conklin Snakeskins but I'm not sure how I feel about dropping $80 on a set of strings. Most of the good nickelplated strings (Ernie Ball, Fender, etc) don't even have strings that run that small. Any suggestions from any ERB'ers here?
