Elixers got me used to gliding over strings really smoothly and quickly but when i tried Martins Sps theres a noticable finger squeak...

Any other strings than elixirs that are know for less finger squeak?

I wanna know now too. I don't really get it but it does get annoying when it happens

Cleartones are better than Martins for squeak, but they are not as good as elixirs in that regard. However, they seem to more prone to breaking. I miss my elixirs from the feel and squeak aspects, but I don't miss the breakage...

I'm still looking for the perfect solution. (aren't we all though... )

As far as I'm concerned, coated strings have no equal to uncoated strings. I have yet to find a coated string that doesn't sound dead and lack any depth whatsoever. So, my vote goes to D'Addario's Flat Tops.

for me, coated strings sound soulless. not too much depth to them. i've tried elixirs and d'addario exps. i dont like the sound of either that much. Martin SPs are where it's at. even WITH the squeak.

Chad - I see where you are coming from. The Cleartones definitely sound more like uncoated strings compared to elixirs, but they squeak more. Give a little to get a little, I guess.

I'll try your D'd Flattops next, though - I just put some electric D'ds on my T5 and like them, but that's a bit of a different animal, I think...
