Soft to the touch but sharp tone
Benjamin I., 01.04.2019
I'm not going to talk much about the sound, a thousand reviews and countless listeners and professional musicians already know. I tried 11-49's at full tension for a while, they have a lot of nerve but they prove hard to bend. So now I'm only putting 10-46's and 9-42's on my axes.

I found an excellent Madison Strat clone with 22 frets and a very well contoured neck joint so it naturally begged for shred strings, and that means 9-42's. Their unplugged tone is exactly the same as heavier D'Addario strings except the biggers ones have a kinda boosted sound all over the spectrum.

I was afraid that would be heard drastically at the amp but no, they level out when amplified, maybe because the pickups need to be a little closer to the less massive strings. However the main reason for the 9-42's was comfort and I got plenty of it. They feel like hair, they bend super easily but not so much that you don't feel a tactile feedback, they do resist a little bit.

For some reason they detune more after bends than after trem motions but they don't detune more than heavier gauges. By the way, the 11-49's I still have will be mounted on a guitar that has an unusual strong resonance in the low end, I will tune it in D standard and enjoy the fat tone. Full tension with 11-49's was an experiment worth doing but the playability of thinner strings is hard to live without.

Comfort should be the same than 9-42's, I guess. I also bought a super affordable Stagg Strat clone with only 21 frets but the neck feels so fast to me, I'll be putting these 9-42's, too, it will be my other shred guitar, and it might prove faster because of the ergonomics.

To be sure to exploit that speed it'll be fitted with these soft 9-42's, the stock 9-42's don't sound great but they feel right so D'Addario tone has to complement that comfort.
Edit: when I switched from fat strings and soft rounded picks to thicker pointy picks and thinner strings the attack remained sharp.

Από τον ήχο είμαι πολύ ικανοποιημένος, πολύ καλός ήχος.
Σε κάποια σετ όμως μου ξεκουρδιζόταν η ΜΙ καντίνι την έσφιγγα ξεκουρδιζόταν, ώσπου τελικά ξεδενόταν από την πλευρά της γέφυρας. Το αντιμετώπισα κολλώντας με καλάι και κολλητήρι την συγκεκριμένη χορδή.
Ευχαριστώ.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
