Loefgren I've been following your posts and until I read the last one was just about to put Elixirs on. Sorry you've had a disappointing result but as Dr W says, it's something you've learned. I've just re-strung my guitar for the first time
My guitar sounds even more beautiful than before. It's rich, warm, bright enough without being too much. There's a warmth that is new and the tone is fuller than the previous D'Addario strings that came with the guitar. I love the new strings. I don't know how to post a photo, so here's what's on the front of the packet:
.011, .014, .019, .027, .036, .050
On the back it says 'Plectrum are soft sounding strings for acoustic guitar with low tension on the bottom end. The plain strings are made of brass coated steel, the wound strings have silk inlay in combination with a highly flexible steel core. Plectrum guitar strings are available for 6 and 12 string instruments.
On the individual string packets it says:
.050 Bronze round wound
.036 Bronze flat wound
.027 Bronze flat wound
.019 Bronze flat wound
.014 Plain steel
.011 Plain steel.
The set cost me $29 AUD
D'oh, having typed all this out it occured to me to find their website where all this info is to be found http://www.thomastik-infeld.com/product-families/Fretted%20instruments/Acoustic%20Guitar
I hope this helps.
