The only downside as I mentioned above is that with the putty, my low E was much quieter than the other strings. I went in and pushed harder on it and the balance was great but the tone became much brighter. If I remember correctly, Schatten recommends the tape method for brighter guitars as it's a bit more balanced tonally.
