    Re: I've gone to the dark side

    I prefer a wound A (GDAE) but you won’t get a wound string to go onto the E. Not unless you use a tape-wound nylon string, which I have by the way but haven’t tried it yet (with a full set of...

    What Jill said about Newtone strings. I love them on my tenors and plectrum. You'll have a choice of nickel plated steel or phosphor bronze. Great strings.
