Put a set of Sepectrum Bronze w/ silk wrap .010-.o50 on the Taylor Koa 12 yesterday. Tuned down D to D.
I think Elixers were on before.
The Spectrums are very clear with less overtones…….slightly less sustain but better note separation .
NO buzzing in D to D tuning……….much louder in standard 440 than previous strings.
Barre chords are same feel……maybe slightly more finger pressure needed for “clean” notes with the Spectrums.
BY the WAY…..restringing a 12 string is WORK. The Spectrums are supposed to be the longest lasting/playing available…..I hope so…..Spectrums are made in Austria and are not inexpensive.
Wonder if SCGC will produce a 12 string set…..I would try those.
All in all I like them.
