I was using NYXL strings up until I tried out Winspear strings. They last longer and sound great. I now string up all my non-acoustic guitars with Winspears. Personally I have found that these sets work great:
10.5-52 for drop C (25.5" six string)
9.5-60 for drop A (25.7-27" seven string)
9-76 for F# standard (26.5-28" eight string)
The strings are beautifully crafted and packaged with care and handwritten labelling. I use a custom set for NST tuning and the ability to create a set that isn't available from a big nameless allows me to experiment and play without having to worry. I love this company!
I've been playing for nearly 30 years and I've been tried many guitar strings over that time. The best I've found were D'Addario NYXL for electric and Elixir for acoustic. That was until I tried these out after falling in love with the Winspear plectrums. I'm done with D'Addario now and moved onto stringing up all my guitars with Winspear strings. I play 1-2 hours per day so get some decent mileage in and find these strings last a considerable amount of time longer that the NYXL's and maintain great feel, stability and tone.
If they ever bring out acoustic strings then I might be prised away from Elixir's!
I've ordered 2 sets of 9-90 for my Ibanez RGA8 and it was, by far, the most amazing strings i've ever played. So comfortable, agressive tone and very good balance. I love those strings and I recommend you to buy those beauties.
Winspear strings feel and sound great, retaining their brightness very well, while I'm pretty abusive on strings, it just suits me fine. All comes with great packaging ideas! I think I'm just going to stick with this brand.
