Any guesses?

I just bought some Hannabach 815-series medium and low tension sets to try out.

I don't know, but it seems to me that "best" is determined by the user.
The D'Add EJ45 medium-tension set (basically) works for me, after trying
many, and I think they're most always worth a try.

Hannabach tend to be on the high-tension side relative to their labeling;
and the trebles from their "super-low" to "high" tension sets are the same,
unless they've recently changed. They have a nice sound, as I recall.
