These are excellent strings, they sound really good and are a pleasure to play. The first string seems to be lower tension than the one I used previously and is easy on the fingers when bending it. My only criticism is that it is quite hard to twist the metal to make loop ends for the 5th to 7th strings. Would it be too much to ask that these strings could come with ready-made loop ends?
Also, it would be useful if the description on the website could make it clear these are for Ravi Shankar style tuning, i.e. Ma, Sa, Pa, Sa, Pa, Sa, Sa, not for standard tuning.
