    Anyone familiar with those strings? I might consider them for my 7... but I still need to figure out what high f I'll use. Are these strings stainless or nickel plated? What would be the best approximation of there tone from any of the other manufacturers?

    thanks

  2. MTD's are pretty good, IMO. The ones that I have seen have all been SS, but that's not to say that there aren't any Nickels.

    Does anyone know who's making those strings for Mike?

    GHS used to make his strings in the '80's. The last set I had a few years ago sounded great with real nice mids but they were very abrasive on the frets compared to other stainless strings.
     
  4. My thoughts exactly...way too abrasive!
