    Tom, will these actually be available to the public? And do they only come in the piccolo gauge? Thanks!

    I believe that they are available from DR now. It's just a matter of having your favorite dealer order them. Not quite sure on the gauge other than that the E is .050.

    That's odd. In an article recently Jonas said that the gauges he uses are 100-45 all single wrap DR. I didn't realize that these were almost like guitar strings!
