Good strings. Great clank sound for metal

By: on 25 October 2022
I usually use nickel strings, but I was missing the metallic twang and Clank I heard on metal records. Tried these out and they are really good. They deliver that high end I was looking for. The lower B string is looser than any nickel string sets, so if you want a tighter string you may have to go for a slightly heavier gauge on the lower B. Other than that, really great.
