Hey there, i have done a search, and this hasn't come up yet!! so dont eat me. A few months ago i put on a set of 5 string Daddadario XL 170s. I need to get new strings, and i was wondering how do the Slowounds differ from the XLs tonewise/feelwise? Their website says some rubbish about slowing down the winding process to ensure no errors are made...etcetc, but tone is not mentioned. i have found the XLs tone to be very clear and concise, a little thin sounding, and quite sterile. So if the XLs and Slowounds are very similar to eachother, i wont be trying the Slowounds, since i am looking for a warmer, thicker sound. thank you if you help me and thankyou for reading all that.
