    When my strings are new, they give off a metal ringing, is this normal?

    i would give anything to keep it that way.. but no. they must die.. and i must shell out $20 for new strings. that's just the way it is
     
  3. the ringing will go away after a few hours of playing

    What kind of strings sound like slightly used roundwounds(like after that metallic sound)? Cause I hate that metallic sound. Me like the booming bass tones.
     
  5. Try D'addario slowounds, have that used sound, and thats why I didnt like them, but you might like it.
