Its amazing how much more flexible the Fat Beams are from the Foderas. Nice round finger style sound. So much easier on the fingers and they dont make so much of a screech and grab my fingers when I move up and down the fretboard. though, im starting to miss how good the Foderas sounded slapping. The Fat beams cant compare with the great slap sound of the Foderas. I guess Highbeams are next on the string list.
