So after playing DR Nickel Lo Riders (and loving them) for the past year I put on a set of Chromes out of curiosity as everything I keep reading about them sounds like I would like them. Pros: -Tension, I like it and the resulting ability to set the action very low -Sound, they have the mids I like with enough highs and lows although I have not played them in a band setting yet. -I play a MM Sterling Classic. It is aggressive and i have never been able to play it with the treble and bass dimed because it is just too much with rounds. I seem to be able to do so with these strings, although so far I still like the sound better when I back off the treble and bass a touch (or more). -Actually seem more versatlie than the DRs, but that could just be my initial perception as the DRs are almost a year old and the Chromes are new. Cons: -G string does not have the same sustain as the other three strings. Anyone else have this problem? Maybe it is an issue with the nut? -They seem to be harder on my fingers than the roundwound nickels which is a bit of a surprise. Not a big deal to me. I am going to keep them on for a good while and let them break in - curious to see how they sound with some age as everyone seems to like them better that way.
