    I am looking for steel strings from my RV5 and wonder if anyone has A/Bed Ken Smith Rock Masters and Labella Hard Rockin' Steels. The nickels I have on know do not have as much bite as I would like. I tried ProSteels but they were a little mid shy and rough on my fingers at least compared to the nickels I typically use. The Sadowsky Steels were a bit crunchy on the highes for me and do not come in my gauge. I am partial to a 45-100 set with a solid B and Ken Smith and LaBella give that option.

    I am a finger style player looking for a nice tight bottom with pleasant highes and substanial mid range. I usually avoid the smiley face on the EQ.
