I decided to shake things up and try a set of 80/20's... I put them on last night and I am surprised.
The pick is an important piece of the puzzle because that is the main source of the strings' attack. But 80/20's seem to "dull up" more than PB's. They key is to see if you still like these strings in 2 or 3 weeks. Have you tried any Elixir 80/20's on your guitar?
