I'm looking to try a different set of strings and I've heard good things about these two sets so I was hoping some of you who have tried them can give me your opinions and answer a few questions I have. The Brite Flats intrigue me because I've never played flats before and I'd like to try. However, my only cabinet is a 15 inch Black Widow so even though they are called Brite Flats I am worried that all I will get out of them is pure mud. How will the two strings compare in terms of tone/brightness? I am also on a budget so I want a string that will last a long time - what can I expect to last the longest? Also, how do the nickel DRs compare to the steel ones in respect to the above categories? Finally, will switching strings often lessen their lifespan? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
