Tried T.I.'s on my 2001 jazz strings-thru and although they are a damn well-made string, I just didn't get on with the low tension. Now I'm using Rotosound 77 (105-45) and I'm very happy with them. They really cut thru the mix with a loud band. Every note's pure and "there". I'm usually just a fingers player but with the Rotos on I'm using a pick more and more because of the Carol Kaye-like tone I can acheive now. Cool!
