My Yamaha F335 is just over a year old, and I still have the strings it came with. I've noticed that their quality has died down a lot (duh).

I have no clue what brand they are, but they started out with this really warm, gutsy tone from the guitar.

I'm looking for some steel strings that'll do that for me as well as retain their tension with some alternate tuning going on.
Any Recommendations, forum?

If you are tuning down, I would use 13-56, if you tune up, 12-52. I like phoshor bronze strings, and have been using John Pearse for longer than I can remember. They take a day or two to lose the bright edge, then last for a long time.


Price Check, should be about 7 bucks?

Sorry can't help with that, I'm in Oz, where we pay a lot more. That's the ones I'm talking about though.

I like these. They're a little more pricey, but they're coated. So they last longer. In my opinion, they are one of the only coated strings that sound great.

EDIT: I just remembered, right now, they are selling double sized packs. So they're really half the price if you buy them soon.

I second the John Pearse strings, though I prefer the nickel ones over the bronze ones. 13-57 for standard tuning.

That's a very cheap price for coated strings. I like the feel of coated strings myself and they sound just as good as uncoated to me. I've been using D'addario EXP's and I just got a couple sets of cleartones which I haven't tried yet. I may have to try these dragon skins too at that price.
