Yeah, alright so I accidently bought acoustic strings (Elixer) and I'm wonderign if I could still use them for my electric. I know acoustics are different metals then electric, would putting acoustic strings on an electric make the electric sound bad?


I just wanted to know before I changed the strings.

I know you CAN as long they're not bronze or w/e. They will sound different though. Try one string.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

I dont think it would work at all. IIRC, the metal acoustics strings are made of aren't made of a magnetic material, therefore no sound will be picked up.
Or something.

I doubt you could return opened strings...

Haven't really tested them out fully enough to tell yet. But, they sound pretty clean and clear with a good amount of that "twang" to them. Which, being a Strat/Tele kinda guy, love.

I did this once before. They sound different, but I don't know if I'd say better. Just.. different.
