I like the D'Addario EJ45 strings - normal tension. But, only the last three. The first 3 (especially the G) are really dead. I've tried multiple sets on multiple guitars (Goya, Epiphone, Salmanca) and got the same results. I know the last time I bought strings they were D'Addario, but I don't remember which ones. They were great. What are you usin' that don't suffer from the first 3 sounding dead?

I use the Daddario's but use the hard or extra hard tension. The others just feel too soft. I find them very well balanced between the wound and nylon string sets.

how many times do you wind the string on the peg? I pull it tight with 0 winds. pinch it under the string itself and tune to no more than 1/4 turn. gives great life and brilliance. 1 full wind will kill your tone. especially on nylons.

Does the "hard tension" put more tension on the neck like a heavier gauge string or just mean that the string is a little harder to pull? I don't want/need more tension on the neck.
