We all know the challenge of finding our favorite strings.... sometimes we stick with the same strings for years, simply because we can get only the one set at our local guitar dealer, or we tried them once and didn't bother trying something else after. I've tried various manufacturers and gauges, looking for a set of strings that sounds good, feels good, lasts, doesn't cost a fortune. I mostly play in Drop C, and these are the strings I've settled for for a while now. Why? Well, first, the gauge is exactly what I like to play. It's not too loose, not too tight (for me - this is purely subjective) on a 25.5" scale in Drop C. Secondly, they last a bit longer than other strings I've had. And thirdly - the sound! When putting them on the first time on my Tele, I already noticed there's much more clarity and "sing" to these than to most other (Nickel) strings. Unplugged as well as plugged, clean or high gain - they sound so mich brighter and clearer. Really really beautiful. It's really a pity you can't get the Pro Steels in many other gauges, would love them in a 11-56 for my lower tunings or a 10-64 for my 7strings... but hey, for 6string Drop C, these are by far my favourite strings!
