    New strings pending!
    Should be delivered within a week. This brand gets a lot of love here and elsewhere, so let's see what they're about.
    My apologies to Rick Beato, they aren't 7s...

    I think you are going to like them. I use TIs and they are worth it, imo. Last forever.

    Let us know what you think once you get to use them.

    cheers

    Hmm, I never saw those. I'll be interested in a review. I use T-I flats on a jazz guitar, and they're nice.

    I’ve been using the TI flats and feel like a change so let us know how you find them. Although expensive they have a quality about them and do seem to last well.

    For goodness sake, how long does it take to mail something from North Carolina to Toronto? I could have driven there and back several times by now!

    Probably hung up in customs you know strings are a crazy commodity and they are probably doing research to find out just what ransom to charge you for them.

    You do know I was kidding a bit right. We ship to our dealers up there but it got so bad we had to have a parts place up there because every time it was something we needed to keep production going it would hang up in customs ten days.

    I've learned to be patient when ordering from the US.

    Anyways - these strings are great so far. Put em on, tuned them up, and they stayed there for 30 minutes. No stretching, no tweaking, none of the bothersome new string routine. And sweet sweet tone. Two big plus signs right out of the gate.

    I also like the change in gauge. I'd been playing 11s, and these are a 10/11 mix, with the top 3 being 10s. A bit easier on the hands.

    I noticed my tone changed on the strings after about an hour of play kind of settled in that was the swings though, no other way to describe it. But I have had virtually no tuning stability issues with the Swings or bebops. I can't help but wonder how these sound in comparison to the ones you got!

    They are very stable and feel nice, if that makes sense. They sound terrific!
