I just fitted a set of new strings on my ec-1000 and just wow! it just played so nice and I've been playing non stop for like the last two hours. I've changed the stings on it loads of times but for some reason it just so much better all of a sudden.

oh the strings are D'Addario's which are the same as what I had on before.

Yeah, a fresh set of strings is always a nice feeling. Especially after the current strings have been used to hell.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

yeah I think it might just be I'd forgotten what they felt like it was maybe 3 months ago when i changed them last and I've done a few gigs in that time, I think I need to start changing them more often just I'm a bit lazy when it comes to changing strings. =]

Fair enough, I get the same feeling when I change strings sometimes. The mood's almost immediately spoilt by the inevitable tuning slippage for the first few minutes, even after a marathon bout of stretching...

Although I usually think discussions on brands of strings can be a bit banal and pointless, D'Addarios are certainly the most consistent I've ever used, never had a bad pack. Ditto GHS. I avoid Rotosound entirely because I've had strings with loose or broken ball ends on numerous occasions, Ernie Balls lose their tone far too fast, and brands like DR, Optima Gold and Thomastik are simply too expensive for regular gigging.
