Hi Dave

as you know I am a bit of experimenter myself when it comes to strings. I did try the S&S early on, but didn't stay with them for long - ending up installing light gauge electric strings.

However, as a side note, today I find the strings I like the most are 11gauge flat wound strings. I have them on a couple of guitars and find them very comfortable.

In fact, reading your post, I decided to order another set, but in my Amazon search I came across 10 gauge[u] half round[/u] strings. I have never tried these, so I thought for $15 I would give them a try. They should be here Tuesday, and I will probably do a short review of them
