Anyone use these? I've been thinking about switching to coated strings(and therefore re-stringing less) and EB is the only one that offers anything close to the gauge I like for C standard(their "Beefy Slinky" 11-54). How do these compare to regular EB strings? Or other coated strings?
Currently I use Webstrings, but after the last few times they've brushed me off over when they'd get some 9-46s back in, I'm not thrilled with them anymore. I'm also getting too many guitars to keep stringing them all every 2 months without driving myself nuts.
I understand hardly anyone really coats the top 3 strings, but those are the ones that wear the fastest. Does the plating/"anti-rust" do anything on those plain strings? I would love to go Elixir or DR, but neither offer a decent set for tuning down. If it comes to it, I could do one of those brands for my E and Eb guitars, and just the EBs on the C guitars...
Typically I restring all my guitars every 2 or 3 months, and spread out the play time on each. I'd like to take that to every 6 months(unless I were to start gigging, then all this is out the window).
Any insights would be appreciated.
