I have plenty of both the Adamas and Telefunkin graphite 2.0s. I prefer the Telefunkens because I like their shape better. But they sound pretty similar to me.

What does Jerry tone mean to you? Copying Jerry slavishly? Honoring Jer's music no particular way but our own?
We're each of us unique. And also the same. Can we open our hearts and minds to both?

I prefer the Adamas over the Tele's for the grip. The Tele's feel a bit too slippery to me.

I put on a fresh custom Jerry set with a .050 low e and .011 high e from a pack of 11's. I am really liking these strings. I see they also sell singles which is pretty cool!

So the set I am using


thanks for the heads up,

So if Jer's case had both the 10/47 and 11/50 sets in it, what do we know about which ones he used- or did he switch off? Did he ever say in one of those GP interviews? I know Mike has the Brawer info about Vinci 10/46 set with an occasional 11 and 47 on his site.
