I just bought these and tried them out yesterday. They are round and warm and growl nicely. I use the DR Sunbeams(nickel plated steel) and they sound good and feel smoother but after trying these the Sunbeams seem sort of weak and toneless. I guess the pure nickel really helps. The only downside on the Fenders is,my hated nemesis,high tension. It is the medium set. Would the lite set .40 .60 .80 .100 feel much different in terms of having lower tension or would the TI jazz rounds be worth looking into?
