In short - I don't like them. The A D and G are great but the E is just thumpy and dead. It'd be perfect for Hofner-era McCartney lines, and in fact I think those are the guys who buy Pyramids these days. Phil changed his strings more than Sir Paul, I think and didn't let his E go dead. Or maybe it's just a limitation in the Hofner design... either way, if I could get four equal strings it'd be great but as it is I feel like I'd have to palm-mute the other strings to get them to match the E.
I'll be going back to TI flats asap for my short-scale flatwound needs.
