Holy hell do these strings not hold tune at all for me. Do they have a really long break in time or something? They seem to wobble all over the place. And the low B is really weird, it says it's in tune on the tuner but then sounds out of tune when I play. I don't know if I got a bad string or something, I've never had this happen before. They're also darker than the year-old set of elixirs I took off which is weird. I put the low B of the year-old elixir back on and confirmed it - old elixir was brighter and clearer. It also held tune better. I wish I didn't buy two sets now as they're only a couple pounds cheaper than elixirs. I have a set waiting for my 8 when my new pickup comes Hopefully this is just a bad set or something and those ones work better.
