Anyone else here prefer the sound of older guitar strings? I can't stand the twangyness of new ones

if you play for about an hour or so on new strings you don't even notice that twang anymore.

nah, I usually notice for a couple weeks. Especially when those super long life elixer's are used.

Depends on the piece. The sound of older string on an acoustic is nice and mellow.

I like the sound of new strings but the feel of my old ones, if only there was a way to combine the two

ah, you're right, should have specified. This is for my mahogany Martin D-15

new strings rule, old strings imo are hard to play on, they buzz aswell just a tiny bitmore if u ask me, and it makes the sound amplified fromthe ampabit more annoying i think!

I've got into a habit of cleaning my guitars every time I change their strings, so whenever I do it's like I'm playing a new instrument.

There is something to be said for playing slide on a battered up plank with knackered strings though.
