Bought a set of these for my Sadowsky Metro a few weeks back based on Dave’s recommendation. Break-in time was relatively quick- I put them on a few days before a rehearsal and they were playable but still a bit zingy, and by the next rehearsal one week later they were perfect (didn’t do much playing in between so they can likely be broken in much faster).
I love the feel of them- I prefer nickel strings for the slick feel under my fingers more than the sound, and these strings feel great. I’m also really happy with the tension; they’re stiff enough to get a nice clean pull without hurting the fingers.
Tone-wise, they’re nice and crisp with lots of low fundamental. I like a nickel string that is still somewhat bright, and these certainly check all of those boxes. Time will tell how long they last, but so far I’m very happy with them.
I would recommend these strings. They’re a couple bucks more than your run-of-the-mill five string sets, but worth the money in my opinion! Thanks Dave!
