    The 'Doms with Stark E' set! This setup sounds incredible. I am moving to lighter gauge strings so they're up for sale.

    Dom GDA - all in great condition. D and G have about 5-6 months of use in them, A about 1 month. Bought new, installed very carefully and removed only once. $100 $95 $90

    Spiro Stark E - sold!

    Price OBO, CONUS and includes shipping.

    There are some who have reported breakage issues with restringing Doms while others have reported multiple times on and off with no issues. I suppose it depends on the string. It's worth a search in the strings forum. FYI I bought all of these strings new from Gollihur and installed and removed, very carefully, only once.

    I researched these strings a bit before pulling the trigger on them. It seems the main thing to be cautious of with these is to not wrap any of the playing length of the string around the tuning peg.
    This was fine for me on ADG but based on the silk lengths on the other strings I opted to experiment with Spiro Es instead. The mensure on my Shen is 41 1/4".

    You can keep less of the string on the tuning peg by singing them in the Genssler/Velvet way at the tailpiece.
