I wanna get some of those Elixir strings, trying to find the cheapest place I can get 'em.
hotroxuk.net (i think?!)
but stringbusters is often cheaper.
just google them both :)
have either of you used Elixir strings? I don't know whether to get the Nanoweb or Polyweb. I've read that the Polyweb ones can sound a bit dull.
I'll never go back to shitty normal strings, they absoultely rule.
the worst bit now is actually getting them on me guitar without fucking it up. I always find the B string to be a nightmare.
cos my son just seems to bust the one
i mean, its always the case that one string breaks at a time, but you replace the entire set cos otherwise it sounds stupid, as the old strings are much duller than the new.
if you're meaning that he breaks a particular string everytime, then there is something wrong which you need to work on. maybe file the saddles slightly to make sure there's nothing rough that they're breaking on, and think about lubricating the saddles and nut (the graphite from a pencil works well for this).
he used to use stringbusters
