Okay, I'm admitting here that I don't want to drop $100 bucks on some strings that are going to fray and break right off the bat (which I've heard Obligatos sometimes do without ample use of graphite on the bridge and nut). However, I've also heard (read) nothing but good about these. My question is to any Rockabilly musicians around here. Are these any goof for rockabilly slap? I really like steel (and if I'm not mistaken, Obligatos are a steel hybrid correct?) strings so I want to stick with them. Can anyone help out here?
