Since I often use metal finger picks when playing, I am always in search for strings that will be sufficiently warm/mellow sounding, to compensate for the bright sound those picks produce. So far, these strings seem to do the job nicely, and they also sound quite nice when playing with bare fingers. They might not serve all playing styles and all types of guitars; there are many different preferred parameters for different players, but for my particular purpose they seem to be the best strings on which I've stumbled yet. If you are in the same boat as me and looking for strings to compensate brightness, then I would definitely recommend to check them out. Even if you're not, you might as well try them out; who knows, you might end up pleasantly surprised.
