NGSD, stands for New Guitar String Day, i just made that up, good stuff.
I like Strings and Beyond, occasionally they have free international shipping, and it's one of those days. Always like to try some guitar strings, that i haven't tried or are not easily available in little old England. So these are the guitar strings i have ordered.
DR Rare Phosphor Bronze 12g Martin SP Flexible Core Phosphor Bronze. 12g Curt Mangan Phosphor Bronze 12g
Anyone tried the above strings.
Still know where near 40 sets of guitar strings in my collection, (yet).

Derick , I have never tried those. I'm not as adventurous as some with strings I guess - I tried the EB aluminum bronze a couple of years ago, and still have a set of those left, I've got a few sets remaining from years ago, Martin Bluegrass, and set of indeterminate origins (just the individual string envelops rubber banded together, no outer envelop or box with brand info) along with the types I use more routinely. The routine use strings these days are d'Addario EJ16 & EJ17, and Elixir nanoweb phosphor bronze mediums & HD lights. I read about all these different strings, and think about them when someone like yourself talks about buying or trying them, but I don't stray out of my usual rut much...... I'm living vicariously through your experiences when it comes to string experimentation.....

Greg Ballantyne, My favourite guitar string for quite a while has been the Elixir Nanoweb PB 12g, but it's nice to try different makes and materials of guitar strings As I'm sure you know, a different make and type of string, can make your guitar sound, quite different. Buy using different strings and different picks, you can get a vast range of tones. The last three Crafter Guitars that i have bought, the stock strings that they came with, are brilliant, they are not Elixir, but they are coated, and last a very long time, but i don't know the make.
