So I'm trying out Ernie Ball coated strings (.010s) and the treble strings feel less slippery than the treble strings on Elixirs. Does anyone else get that or is it just me?
#2
i donno if their less slippery but i cant wait for these eb coateds to wear out i hate how they feel & hate how they sound
#3
Try cleartones, no slippery feeling at all.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I think It might be you mate.. No offense.. After playing a guitar with elixirs, and a guitar with titanium coated Ernie Balls, I found the elixirs more slipperly.

Also, happy birthday in advance mate. !

What do titanium coated strings sound like? I've always used D'addarios or DRs, neither of which I found to be slippery at all.

i found them to sound very tin-ny.. sharp and abrasive.. absoutly hate it.. only tried them cause i was at guitar center and they stopped stocking rotosound strings

resists string corrosion making them last longer.

I should mention that I like the slippery feel better. I might just stick with Ernie Balls if they last longer. My hands sweat a lot also.

If you can live with the Elixirs, I'd strongly recommend them. I had no sign of corrosion on my strings, even after having Elixirs on for 10 months or so.. Only restrung my guitar the other day.

I only tried them out once - and that was like 2 years ago.
IIRC, I didn't really find it much different compared to normal ones. But I was young and non observant back then.

The only special strings I've tried are DR Silvertones. I like them a lot. They lasting along time, look and feel good. I'm not sure if there was tone change.

Brand new Elixers are definitely slippery. You've just gotta play them in. That said, I use Ernie Ball for the reason of feel.
