I found the low E string dead- I have Ernie Ball 10-50, 80/20's, well, did have, since May or June. I have it written down somewhere-
Today I installed the Martin Retro 11-52's monel wrapped. It made a pretty significant difference in the sound. It still has a very deep/resonant low E, but not near as much as the 80/20's. The rest of the strings mellowed out and the non wound strings I like a bunch better than the Ernie Ball strings.
I put the Martin Retro's on the new Mitchell in the 10-50 gauge and they changed it as well- I like it better now.
They are harder on my fingers though- the monel vs the 80/20 bronze is different.
