I'm trying to do my string homework before I change them. I'm not getting a lot to go on. I don't understand the reasoning for changing out the 6 string pair... I'm thinking i will go with elixir, and order a single string x 2 if i need to, after the fact (@$6 ea) I did this morning re tune to DADGAD and I DON'T get it. every chord I played sounded really out of tune! was this a joke? haha i fell for it, or there something I'm not getting.

Youíre going to have to play some games to get Elixirs in the right gauges. Closest I can find is an electric ĎSuper Lightí set, which is .009-.042. Either that, or youíll be buying lots of strings just to get what you need.

Or you can just buy the Newtones, which will actually come out cheaper than two sets of the Elixirs, and be delightful to play. Plus the fun of getting something in the mail from the UK

Interesting. I donít see anything on their website - is this a set that they put together for you, or something they already had, but didnít advertise?

Iím going to ask them as well - Iíll be asking them about strings for my X20-7 also.

David. their custom sets allow you to pick the size for each string. they offer a wound or unwound string for #3. i have reservations....i ordered on thursday and a shipping label was created. as of saturday, they still have not shipped. prompt shipping is a requirement of mine.

Understood. Newtone offers the same facility. Many times, their custom sets are made to order, however, so shipping is best described as leisurely.
