Hey there, here’s a quick comparison video for three different types and brands of guitar strings on a fretless electric guitar.
Before you watch the video and see for yourself, here are some words;
I have tried Elixir 12102 Nanoweb Coated, La Bella Jazz Tapes 800-R Black Nylon Wound and Thomastik Infeld Jazz Swing JS111 Flat Wound models on a single day and come up with this video! To be honest, Elixir was used much longer than the other two. I just recorded a sample then restrung my guitar twice more. La Bella Jazz Tapes was clearly my least favourite one as the nylon wound strings did not feel as much OK as the plain strings of the same set. It was much more difficult to achieve slides. Thomastik Infeld one was the best I guess! It was way more balanced and focused than the other two. But I would still go for Elixir if I didn’t have another choice!
By the way, it’s been ages since I played something so please bear with me sounding a bit unconfident 🙂
