OK, so I got my new Lakkie last week, but didn't really like the factory rounds that it came with. So, upon advise of fellow TB'ers., (note: I said in a previous post, I use Labella DTF's on my Ibanez 5 string, but wanted a little more snap or punch), so I ordered a set of D'Addario Chromes. They arrived today, however, so far, I'm not happy. I definitely am not happy with the low B string....it just kinda says BLAH, as compared to the rounds and the Labellas on my Ibanez. So much, that I put the stock Lakkie round low B on, but left the bottom 4 Chromes. This seemed to help a lot. I'm getting used to the Chromes tone, but they are S-T-I-C-K-Y, if feels like I have dirty fingers...if that makes sense. I'm hoping they'll 'break in' over the next few days of playing. I didn't notice this when I switched from rounds over to Labella Flats. They don't have the 'string talk', of course, as the rounds. We are going in the studio for a couple weeks, next Monday. Hopefully, they'll break in... Any other suggestions? What about D'Addario half rounds? I see on the back of D'Addario's box, half rounds are kind of a happy medium between the two. Any thoughts on these, or even other brands?
