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.

Pyramids have too much tension
These are perfect
Really great strings!
This is not the first time I've bought them. I also use them on on my Fender 12 string. The only way to go.
Great customer service
