I'm only considering to make a test and replace the g-string with carbon (I think I still have a Savarez ARJ 500 set somwhere laying around) when changing the next time.
GHS's e and b sound and play "latin" and stay very quickly in tune, but the intonation of g could be slightly better from the 8/9th fret on, which is a Nylon problem in general (it was the same with "T.store"s cheap D'Addario EXP46 clones). It's not really a problem, but maybe a thinner string will do better (?)
I agree. Much as I'm enjoying browsing the historical posts generally (I'm a newcomer), over 40 pages of content on this single topic is proving to be a challenge and the summary would be much appreciatedchrispeppler wrote:I am sure the moderators know by now that the link to the strings poll is dead (download/file.php?id=24098&mode=view) It would be great to have access to the poll.
What you are linking to is the jpg in this post, and unfortunately it appears that the jpg file itself is corrupted, presumably one of the casualties of the last server move, and the member who posted it has not visited since last May, so it's unlikely to be replaced unless some other member has a previous download of it and can let us have that. We'll probably just have to hope someone else will have the time and energy to produce an updated version.chrispeppler wrote:I am sure the moderators know by now that the link to the strings poll is dead (download/file.php?id=24098&mode=view) It would be great to have access to the poll.
