I used to play D'addarios as well before switching to Elixirs, sanayan lang din and I don't even remember how D'addarios feel anymore. Tried Nano Poly and just recently Optiwebs and I like them all though i prefer nanowebs most

likewise. between elixirs i prefer the nano aswell. hated the poly though. it feels stiff. nung dati when i have alot of time i buy bulk daddarios. i love the feeling of freshly changed strings on a guitar. yung naga squeak pag nag slide ka ng daliri mo. plus yung colored ball ends ng daddario. pag naka double locking bridge ka pwede mo ikabit yung ball ends nasa headstock tapos kitang kita ang cool tignan diba. aminin ng iba dito ganun din ang naramdaman. yung cool factor ng iba ibang colored ball ends sa headstock. count me as guilty. hehehe

I would have to try elixers one of these days to actually see how they actually feel and sound tho I feel that I'd like them for the longevity. I just forgot na elixirs na pala dapat gagamitin ko but bought D'ads instead.

Question lang, diba 'coated' yung strings? Does that mean na I'll hear less noise when moving parallel to the string? yung sinabi ni sir knet370 na 'squeak' pag nag slide. I really don't like that sound specially when playing whats supposed to be a silent passage.

Almost 2 decades ago (around the late 90's) nasubukan ko yung Thomastik Infeld power brights ata yun (brass plated yung maninipis na strings) at tumatagal sya kumpara sa D'Addarios. Umaabot ng halos 1 month ng di kinakalawang at walang pagbabago sa intonation compared sa regular strings na less than 1 week lang kinakalawang na at bahagya na ding sintunado.

Baka may nakagamit na sa inyo pa feedback naman kung nagustuhan nyo o hindi.

D'Addario NYXL 10-54
D'Addario 10-52 Regular Top / Heavy Bottom
D'Addario 11-52/54 Med Top / Heavy Bottom

Has anyone tried Orphee hexagonal strings? I'm really intrigued as it is really cheap but and plan to buy it in bulk.
