Dean Markley SR2000 1.02-.46 Where do I start? Horrible sound. So tinny and thin. I feel like I'm playing a guitar. Horrible playability. Way too thin, not as smooth as the nickel steels or Ernie Ball slinkies. Horrible life, didn't last at all. These things are worse than the pack of rotosounds I played. The sound of the strings is what really killed it. The strings just took all of my low end away completely. I couldn't wait to put on a set of slinkies 105-45.
