    I have an MTD 535 ash/wenge/wenge

    I currently have MTD strings 45-135x and I need some new strings.

    I am looking for stings that have a usable bright high end but also deep sounding lows and narrowed down my choice to DR lo-riders since they have awesome reviews here on TB.

    I read that lo-riders have a hex core and hex-core strings have more tension than round cores.

    how do the lo-riders feel compared to Round core SS strings(more specifically, MTD strings)?

    and if Lo-riders have more tension, do I need neck adjustment even if I get the same gauges?

    Thanks a bunch,
