String update

a while since i've been on. String update!

Not impressed with the Ko'Olau gold strings i've been trying on my concert Mainland. Nice strings, don't get me wrong, but very fussy on tuning. I find they are too sensitive to heat - and once tuned, even the heat from fretting fingers can throw them out of tune.

Now trying Martins on the Mainland - not the shoddy nylons, but their newer flourocarbons- first impressions are great - hold tune well, light on the fingers, lovely chiming tone.
