I almost made the biggest mistake of my life, and believe me, I have made some doozies! After changing the strings on my 000-15M, I really hated the sound. I used the Martin phosphor bronze. I have bought some strings before that sounded horrible, but broke in well. And being a bit frugal, I wanted to get some use out of them. I quit playing the guitar, unless I was in a bad mood, cuz the strings didn't sound so bad when you really dug in.
Long story short, I changed the strings to what seems to be my prefered strings 80/20 bronze, and OMG, I love my guitar again. I can't believe it's the same guitar.
Has anybody gone through this before and found those strings that you absolutely hate? What were they? Are there any phosphor bronze fans? If so what guitar and genre do you play?
