I stopped using the SC strings for now, but I may go back one day. They have a great feel and really last, but I miss that "new strings" sound on my guitars.

Default Mid vs Low tension

I first tried the mid tension strings on a D28 and decided to return to Newtone because the Para's felt stiffer and tone was not necessarily better . But before switching back I tried low tension Para's on the D28 and they are perfect. Just the right string tension for ease of playing. Plenty of volume and even volume across all six strings and very musical. So I tried low tension Para's on an Advanced Jumbo and same great result. I'm sold. They're more expensive than the Newtone's but they are much easier to obtain and, from what I've read, will last longer.

All I use are SC mid tensions. Been using them solely for almost two years. They last longer than the John Pearse strings I was using so I actually SAVE money in the long run. These easily last me 2-3 months and I was using other strings every 2-4 weeks.

They say that tone is in the fingers....I say it is in your head.
