      Re: S.I.T. strings

      i used to get them from my guitar teacher back in the early 90s...kept breaking the high e string. even with the extra one it came with i'd bust them both in a week. thought it was a burr in the saddle but tried a set of d'addarios and never had the issue (or SIT strings) again. always been meaning to try a set again for old times sake.

          You know, I haven’t broken a string since I was in high school.
          What do you mean I donít like change? Nobody likes change when it sucks.

            I don't break strings much...its been about 5 years. I do change them a lot, as the Florida humidity gets to them quickly, and I also play pretty softly.

              I've got them on my Charvel and my Dinky right now. They're cool. I used them a lot for a while about 15 years ago. Then they got tough to find so I switched back to the D'addario's that I'd used before that. I found them on Strings and Beyond a few months ago so I ordered a few sets. They're as nice as I remember them being.. I like Sfarzo Screamer's as well.. they're a tiny bit warmer/rounder & mid-ier than most other strings...like a D'daddrio set that's been used for a while. But yeah..the SIT's are good.

                Re: S.I.T. strings

                I remember a pack of DR' strings I bought years ago-

                to be rather dark, and very middy :o

                Anyways, these days I just use regular D'addarios! 0,11's in standard tuning. .

                  "Back in the day" a few string makers would give you extra high E and B in a set, most of them stopped doing it at some point.

                    Me too. I've broken a shoe string since I've broken a guitar string.

                    Hope this isn't meandering too far off topic, but I like the Everly strings too. B-52 Rockers.

                      I bought a 1/2 dozen packs a while back, maybe 10 years ago or so.

                      The first pack was great so I installed them on two more guitars. Fully intonated and everything.

                      Only to find issues with g strings going dead in 2 or 3 days. 5 out of 6 packs were bad.

                      I tried a few other brands before ending up with elixirs.

                        I tried stay in tune strings once years ago, they stayed in tune very well but also broke quickly so I left it at that and went back to D'addarios.

                        Maybe not general, but was my experience.

                          This sums up my experience too; they broke frequently on guitars where literally no other strings ever broke. I also wasn't crazy about how they sounded. These days I use either DRs or Curt Mangans on most guitars with D'Addarios on the couple where I want a more hi-fi sound.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

                            Iím starting to see an emerging consensus.

                              I remember that - Boomers and all the others that were made by GHS but sold under various other brand names had extras.
                              Back in the 70s Ernie Ball also used to give you two of the high E and B.

                                It had something to do with the way the string is twisted at the ball end. They started off taking other strings and modifying them with the "Stay in tune" twist. After awhile, they began making their own.

                                I've used tons of their strings, always had great experiences.
