Wouldn't use any other string!

Don't think i've ever broken one of these bad boys and to be fair...i hit them hard after about 9 pints of the black shtuff with a crowd going mental for "Celtic Symphony"! I don't know how but after about 10 gigs, 20 rehearsals with sweaty, (grubby after setting up the gear) fingers, keeping in mind they never get a wipe or polish, the still manage to sound clear, bright and like new/newish strings! Now they will deadin a bit but nothing to the martin strings which will sound like double bass strings after a week of playing how much is that doggy in the window to your 3 year old!
