I decided to try them on my Classical and they sound wonderful. The bottom E is a little weak but what a great string for someone who comes from a Steel String background.

I have seen the Pat Metheny Group live a couple of times and the guitar synth sounded great!

By the way, aside from the plain e, the rest of the strings are flat wound including the 'b'. They also make a set that are made up of all flat wound strings.

Re: Thomastik 'S' strings

Has anyone tried these? I've had some Thomastik Jazz flat wounds on my archtop and lasted months but @£17.95 they are not cheap. There's many types also, Be-bop, tape wraped, Jazz wounds etc i wonder what these would sound like. So, has anyone tried these on a GJ style guitar? Also if anyone knows ...

me neither, why would you do that? you'd have to measure it, then add in a bit for a couple of winds.. bizarre.. Although I don't, I have known a number of people that pre-cut strings prior to bringing them up to pitch. It is evident that the folks at Newtone have as well given their response. -Peter

From what I have heard and from experiences, Ceder is sort of like 'Middle Aged' spruce. As Nick said, Ceder does not change a whole lot over time (where spruce does) so the of Ceder gives a somewhat mature tone from an instrument for someone who does not want to wait for the spruce to get there (or...

I have a Dell'Arte Sweet Chorus that I purchased used a little over a year ago and have been very pleased with it. It is a 12 fret 'D' with a solid spruce top and solid walnut back and sides.

Re: Thumbpicking Gypsy

I have been finger picking using a thumb pick for many years as well, which is one of the reasons I did not have much trouble going to Rest Stop picking. I never really thought to try this music using a thumb pick but it sounds like a great idea for players that are very used to them. Something new ...

I cannot over-state the importance of using quality replacement materials and components when modifying your guitar just as Django has below. This was a top class metro ticket he used here. Expensive upgrades will always pay dividends. If not to you then certainly to your supplier. Old fender picks...

An awsome if somewhat disturbing site :?
On the subject, my dog regularly licks his own arse and would lick the other, if he still had them!

It is sad to say that too many of the interesting posts on this forum degenerate in to such drivel, with even so called moderators contributing. It puts a lot of people off recommending this site to others for sure. David Actually, that's one of the reasons I prefer this site, it's entertaining. Th...

Hi Peter very interesting! Where have you placed the Feather? under the feet? I use a B-Band AST and get a reasonable sound after much EQ tweaking.. Ewan Hi Ewan, I'm not quite sure, I purchased the guitar used and it came with the pickup already installed and I never looked to see where it was pla...

McIntyre Feather Transducer - Trace Acoustic Combination

Hi All, Saturday, I played 'plugged in' for the first time. I have a Dell'Arte Sweet Chorus with a McIntyre Feather Transducer, which I ran through my Trace Acoustic TA35CR amp. After cutting the Bass setting quite a bit, I was able to get a very natural sound out of this combination. There was no p...
