So let's see...I got a new set of strings. They are too light for my tastes, and I'm wondering if I can do anything about it. (Buying new strings isn't an option) They also sound a bit too 'metallic' I've been expecting them to break in...It's been about 2 1/2 weeks now, no luck. So, I'm wondering, has anyone tried or heard of doing something such as applying thin layers of vaseline or oil to your strings? Will it dull the sound a bit and put alittle weight? Or will it just disengage the coils, rendering the strings useless? Any feedback is appreciated.
