I like the Elixir PB, but the G & D strings always break (usually in the middle of a worship service) - never broke a string in two decades till I started using Elixirs. That said, I switched to EXP PB and have been really pleased with the tone & reliability. While I still appreciate the 'compressed' tone of the Elixers, the D'aD EXP PB are all I've used for the past year or so.
But you wouldn't need to change monthly if you had EXPs...
i enjoy extra-light guage strings. it is easier to sing over the light volume of this type of strings. of course, when using a sound system the volume on the vocal mic can be increased. :)
I just went to lighter strings as well. I like them better... especially when you have a good/full band wherein my guitar doesn't need to "do it all", you know?
Do you notice a difference in the intonation? I couldn't really handle it on one of my guitars and went back to lights.
Hadn't thought about that, Steve. Let me go "take a wissen" -Buckwheat
