If I were into changing strings more, I would probably use phosphor/bronze on acoustic, because they do sound just stellar for about 2 weeks (in my expierience)... On electric I would probably just use whatever were the least expensive Nickle wound 10's. I know others are much more picky than me.
With that said, I will be ordering some Vinci's from that website to see if they have any Jerry left in 'em!
If you want to hear an example, all the vids I shot using the Strat were done with Elixers that have been on there at least a year or more.
They stay in tune (and sound just fine to me) for what seems to me to be at least 5x longer than uncoated strings.
It's really no biggie though, whatever you decide to use, I mean, no one's gonna "blame the strings" because they blew a solo, right?
