I recently did an experiment with my strings. I've been a Sadowsky SS string user for a while now but I wanted to see if there was anything out there with more tension. I found that Elrick makes a pretty high tension SS string with the B string being .130. Sadowsky also uses .130 for their B string gauge. When I switched I noticed that my action was quite a bit higher than usual. I took it to a local shop here in town and he lowered the action and adjusted the truss rod accordingly. After playing the strings for a month they're now pretty dead. They died rather quickly for a new set of $35 strings. I'm probably going to go back to Sadowsky SS strings since I like the tone better but I'm worried that I'll again have to get it set up all over again. Should I be worried or go ahead and switch without worry? I don't want to drop another $74 on a set up.
