fingerstyle strings

Post by sandal20 » Mon Aug 28, 2017 7:57 am

Im a proud owner of telecaster thinline and im looking for strings with great mids and warm tone.
I play mostly fingerstyle, so i need clear sound. What gauge would be best? I was thinking about these sets

Is it true that Elixir with nanoweb or polyweb don't have very clear tone?

I can't comment on a string with "great mids" as I'm not sure what that means, but I've been playing Elixirs for almost a decade and a half. The most recent formulas are the best yet. I would say that they have a very clear tone, because to me, the opposite of "clear tone" is "dead string" - and my elixirs last me many months longer than uncoated strings.

Whether you like how they feel or sound is impossible to predict. The nice thing about strings is that they're cheap. Try a set. If they aren't to your liking, try something else next.
