Good quality, smart look, no good sound

04.08.2015
Wanted to play my black Harley Benton L-500 BK (Les Paul copy) times 9-string, for easier bending and to test the feeling of playing and sound (I, 47, played only for 1 year, irregularly and autodidactically).

The ten strings already sounded very well for my hearing, and since the deep E una A string already seemed to be worn out (sounded like a stripped rubber band without character and overtones), it seemed to me appropriate to re-record new strings. So Optima ordered, unpacked, the good workmanship and look and haptics amazed, then re-stretched, stretched, octave cleanliness checked, pole-pieces humbucker fine adjusted, instrument tuned, plugged in Marshall MG15 CDR amp and released.

Conclusion: very soft, warm tone, the winding strings also have some harmonics and sound color (my old ones were really already hosengummis: -D). But somehow the guitar now has a completely different sound color. Well, with thin strings, I can not expect mega-output, but there are quite different overtones and undertones, and with all the strings .... Hmm, played clean for a while, and thought: maybe you get used to it Must ... Then later me gain tested, (gain on 10 o'clock, volume also, all other controls on 12 o'clock): GRAY! Blurred agonies with inharmonic subconsciousness and overlays, no single strings to be heard, - I became a little stiff in the stomach, so unpleasant did that sound. I am a beginner, have hardly any experience values ??and comparison possibilities .... But, if something inharmonically gruesome sounds - that I already notice ;-) Hmmm, these strings will still ne neile, still austesten ....

After two days they came down ... A shame ... the strings make a solid impression, seem to be of a very high quality, maybe they just can not stand with my 'Paula' and / or my Marshall amp ..... Um To put it on the other Gitte with longer scale, goes ncht more ... the ends already already flush shortened .... Schaaadeeee. Nevertheless, a praise to the 'Thomänner'- all in all a super store * daumenhoch *

**** Supplement, on 02.08.2016
Hmmmm, meanwhile the possible explanation!

I suspect that these strings may sound so bad, because I have raised them after 11-bronze by Gibson, which were already 3 months on it. Possibly, the saddle notches and the notches in the Tune-O-matic bridge (soft China alloy) were slightly widened. It is enough, a minimum of room to ne sound rattling and rattling ... therefore the comic overtones!
If I had guessed this, I would have rejuvenated the scores ... (tool I have yes)

Have learned from it: not arbitrarily change the string strength, but for each guitar decide and remain ;-)

The best ropes I've tried

Iván E., 15.09.2012
The best ropes I've ever had, in sight are beautiful, but not only that, to the touch they are soft, they do not give a feeling of most covered ropes, they are not stripped by use (in almost 2 weeks I have not had any desconchon ) And that to me all the rest of coated brands I last less than 2 perfect days.
The best, the sound, neither too warm nor too bright, transparent and crystalline. My choice of strings from now on.
