For years, the EXL170-5SL was my string of choice for my modulus. When I moved to playing a 6-string, I couldn't find a 6SL set in nickel, but I could add a separate C string to a 5SL set. Are the D'Addario C's (.032, .028) fine for 35" scale length? I've searched the archives, but could not find a comparison of DR medium sunbeams to D'Addario EXL170-SL in terms of tension. I've read speculation that if the gauges are the same but it is round vs. hex, that the hex core would be higher in tension. Can anyone confirm this?
