just bought my second set of rotos ever. G string: Awesome, nice, crisp, and ringy. D string: Awesome, nice, crisp, and ringy. A string: Awesome, nice, crisp, and ringy. E string: okay, tons of mids like the other strings, no ringy I love the tone of broken in OR new rotos (rs66)... but i dont like it when all but 1 string ring. In theory, would it work to just play the top three strings for a bit and wait till they die a lil and even out with the monster e string? I used the ghs fast fret on the e string, it brightened up a tiny tiny tiny bit but nowhere near to the ringy-ness of the other strings. I've heard of rotos QC problems but these are really great strings. only time will tell. Who else here loves and hates rotos... AT THE SAME TIME!!!
