Even though I haven’t played them for vey long yet, I really like these strings. I changed my pickups at the same time, so it’s hard to separate what’s causing what. They seem to have less tension which I like.
TI FWs arethe only way to go for Ric owners. I have mine tuned to standard D and they sound fantastic. Pricey yes but they last a long time. Plus super fast shipping, win win!
I’ve tried a lot of different strings on my Rick 12 strings and these are hands down the best. While they are a little harder to play than roundwounds, the sound and the feel of these strings make up for it. They are also a lot easier to play than the Pyramid flats are. Yes, they are pricey. But they will last longer than roundwounds and reduce fret wear. In my opinion, these strings are an essential upgrade for your Rick 12 string.
Excellent strings. Better than the Pyramid strings. The Pyramid were too hard to play. I am glad I took the advice of many Ric players and equally glad Chris had the strings.
I was expecting these strings to be very good, given the price, but they greatly exceeded my expectations. I am huge fan of Pyramid strings, and had also purchased a set of their "Gold" version 12-string set because it had been recommended by Roger McGuinn. I tried them, and found that they were at uncomfortably high tension and -- more surprising given the generally superlative tone of Pyramid strings -- so strong in their output that it was difficult to play them in a nuanced way or with as much control as I'd like over dynamics. These strings are much lower tension and far more responsive to different picking and strumming attacks. Very nice, even tonal range from high to low E. These strings actually make it worthwhile trying out all possible combinations of settings of volume and tone controls because even subtle changes make significantly audible differences. The octave strings chime without being obnoxiously bright. Barre chords are amazingly clear and balanced, with none of the notes muffled or choked. I really thought these strings were going to turn out to be hype, but all the great things people say about these strings are accurate. Rick 12-strings are challenging instruments to play well even if you are aiming only for a flat-out Byrds sound. These strings will allow my Rick 366 to fit into recording mixes far more musically and with far greater versatility than ever before.
