I don't like Daddario strings

  1. I dont know why, but theres no clear tone in them.
    Now I only go for Elixir Super Light 040 - 095 I think.

    wow, They are great, and last muuuuch longer!

    I recommend elixir. What do you prefer?

    This really belongs on the "Strings" forum.

    1) Better topic titles
    2) Topics placed in the right forum.
    3) Good recommendations

    I do like D'Addaro strings.

    I like D'Addaro XLs.
     
  5. Thanks for the tip :rolleyes:
     
  6. But only because I don't like all the differently-colored ball ends. It throws off my color scheme, & in turn, my illusion of coolness. Can't have that.

    I personally love D'Addario's. Just my $0.02.

    Can't get much more alien than Brussel Sprouts. Oh, wait...I forgot about Parsnips.
     
  13. ...if you're from Brussels(Belgium), do you you just call them 'sprouts?' I need to know.

    And I just realized- Semborg, maybe D'Addarios don't like you.

    Well, I like D'Addarios much better, and personally, I think Elixers are crap and sound dead out of the box and they last that way for a good long time. If the dead sound is your vibe though, Elixers do the best at that though.

    Since we don't have a brussels sprouts forum, I am moving this to Strings.


    One of my favorite strings was D'Addario Prisms. Too bad they stopped making them.

    I don't like D'addario strings either, i bought a pack of Fender 9050's flats today, the "M" gauge 55-105. It sounds just like the way i want it too sound, couldn't be happier!

    But i don't think i will buy them again because of the gauge, i want a lighter G string and a heavier E string. When i'm getting my Warmoth SCPB i'm gonna try those TI Flats i've read allover the strings forum, i know there lighter gauge but if it sounds that good, it's got too be nothing but good *Sorry for the long post*
