TI Superalloy Tension problems

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Kilian., Jan 31, 2006.

  1. I love their tone, but their tension sucks.

    I got the standard .105 from their superalloys and after they started to sound really dead, I really loved them. But they had absolutely no tension. Now I have some GHS boomers on the bass and I love the tension, I can play as agressive as I want and won't hear any fretbuzz. :smug:

    Because I don't want to invest 25 in strings that I don't like because of the tension, I want to ask your honest opinnion :) Every answer is welcome, except for the one: change your technique on the TI's. Sorry, that won't work. I've tried it, but I am an aggresive player.


    EDIT: I've got the boomers on for a week now, maybe I should give them a nice chance and let them die out? They have that irritating metallic sound to my ears, the TI's absolutely didn't have that. They had a nice smooth, growling tone.
