D'Addario Copper Strings?

Recommended Posts

Last night, I was rummaging around in a box where I keep my spare strings and found an incomplete set of something called "D'Addario XLReds" which are copper coated strings and, apparently, are not made anymore.


I vaguely remember buying them, some years ago, and much against my better judgement. I never used them. And now, because it's an incomplete set, I don't see much point in putting the remaining strings on.


Being an incomplete set, I wouldn't get a proper idea of the sound, you see? And I have no idea whether they'd sound any good with either phosphor bronzes or (at a pinch), nickel coated strings.


So... has anyone ever used these things? What did you think of them? And why did they stop making them?

Yeah, I've only got TWO strings from that set, so there's no way I could sell them on eBay. Trying to find a full set (again in eBay) might be interesting though.


It's nice to see that, for once, I have something that nobody else does! ;) Even if it's just two strings! :grin:
