string recomandation for Timberline Parlor HG
 
Hi, got my first harpguitar , a Timberline T20HGpc, as a christmas gift. It´s a lot of fun and more easy to get something nice sounding out of it then expectet. But its sounds a little bit harsh ..lack of lower midts to me . The sub basses er impressive and sounds really good , but the normal six strings are missing some depth. Maybe its the parlor size or mahagony ..
I changed the strings ,put som Elixier phosphor bronze on which i usally like but it´s still a little too crisp when i really dig in.
Do somebody have the same eperience?

Try a set of Martin Retro (aka "monels")...they work well on all mahogany (and also on carbon fiber) bodies (including my T30HGc).
