I bought these strings at the time because they were really the only ones available at the time, from what I have learned I should have left them alone.
Don't get me wrong the strings sound OK but they have a really rough feel to them, I don't think I have ever encountered anything like it before. I personally would not recommend these to anyone unless they were all that was available. Each package comes with a free pick "whoopee" it appears to be of about the same low quality as the strings. I Guess I sound like a real whinny punk but I feel like something that is to be used in such a tactile way should not feel like sandpaper. I will personally never buy these again, and I wouldn't suggest anyone else buy them for any reason.
