Just re-strung my Moollon P Classic with a fresh set of it's own dedicated TIs and realized I'd forgotten the joy of a new set of TIJFs. I'm sure I'm in the minority on this; but I really like the sound of the TIJFs when they are fresh. I love em at 2 years as well, but new, they've got a nice zip to them without being clanky or noisy that I really like. Just burned through around 15 sets of flats in a flatwound testing frenzy over the past 4-6 months and love em or hate em....there's really just nothing like the TIs. I've got 4 weeks to break them in for a ridiculously fun recording session coming up. The Molloon will be wearing TIs and my Serek Midwestern will be sporting its well worn set of Dunlops.
