    I am using golden spiral strings (G & D) by Daddario and they no longer make them. I have played them for 10 years and I don't know what string to go to. I play bluegrass and country and pop and slap. Golden spiral strings are nylon wound on gut. Any help with string selection appreciated! Thanks jt.

    G & D Olivs by Pirastro. If you like gut, nothing else sounds like gut. About the same price as Golden Spirals.

  3. If you slap the Olivs are prabably not a good choice. The metal windings tend to be a little too delicate for that (in fact it's cautioned against right on the packaging).

    Have you checked the Lemur catalog?

    Golden Spirals are back---the new Lemur catalog has them for sale--G and D only...I think they're around $25.00 each--
