I can't stand those things. I have a set I bought in 2005 and never strung. I wonder if they're stale yet? Used D'Adds for years-love the tone and feel, but frequent changes seem to be the norm. I guess it's a good thing they're relatively cheap...
Considered a new string to change things up, but I already know I don't like coated strings. So, since the biggest factor with un-coated strings seems to be personal preference, I wondered if a 24k gold string might hold up to corrosion and outperform coated strings tonally?
I suppose they would need to last three times as long to be cost effective, but these 24k strings aren't just for looks, are they?
