I have used DR LR SS for years. But now that I am playing in a different band that's into Motown morso than hard rock i maybe want to tone down my strings a bit. I like the tone of LR's but the tension and zingyness is getting old. I was thinking of going back to HB's to get a little more loser string and maybe nickels to have less of a crispy tone. I have never tried nickel strings before. How do they compare?
