i just bought a set of Elixer's for my accoustic, and they are great. Im verry impressed with the playability of them. Its almost as easy as playing my electric, and they dont seam to comprimise sound much.

anyways, if you have any experances whit them, please post

I like GHS strings myself. Just changed from 9's to 11's. Sweeeeeeet
I am a constant evolving music machine. Oh Man, I just forgot what I was playing. Oh well, on to the next song. :rolleyes:

How do the 11's feel?I would be afraid to put anything heavier than 10's on without a neck adjustment(string it with 13's and shoot some arrows with the guitar!)

Robin Hood style! HAHA. Really though, they feel great. I like them alot and it wasn't that difficult to set up. I posted a new review under tremsetter which was a post I did few weeks back. If you just search for tremsetter you'll find it.

my carvins came with elixer strings on them. i liked them, but really didn't think they were worth that price. i always ended up snapping them anyways. i just switched to GHS 11's, and i feel that they work just as well.

I use elixirs on my baritone, merely becuase of the convenience of buying a baritone set, rather than having to mix and match my own gauges...I like them, but they are hellishly expensive...
seems I use different strings on all the axes I play live.

My baritone uses elixir baritone sets, my Gibson is strung up with D'addario 10's, my Cort with D'addario 11's and my Prs with Ernie ball 9's

Dunno why I use different strings on each guitar I guess I have come to like the sound they make with those strings on em, more than I did with other strings...
Hope is when we feel the pain that makes us try again
