I'm a Sadowsky string user and have been for a little over a year now. I used to use DR High Beams for a few years after Elixirs but the Sadowsky stainless steels blew me away when I played the for the first time so I switched. I've noticed here recently that the Sadowsky stainless steel strings, both blue and black label, get a little sticky when the humidity and heat go up. Another thing I noticed is that this summer they've died on me a little quicker. I still love the string though. I'm thinking about trying something different. I don't want to miss out on something that's out there if I just stick to one brand. I want to see what the world has to offer. Like I said, I've been a DR user for years and now a Sadowsky user, but what else? What would be a comparative string to the Sadowsky SS and the DR High Beams? I like a nice punchy stainless steel string with a little less clack than some of the stainless steels I've played, like the Sadowsky SS. I love them, mind you, but they are a tad on the clacky side IMO.
