  1. How is it possible that they can have a size “Extra Medium”?

    I bought a few packs of these and while they are good strings, the B string is pretty weak. I know Tully Kennedy from Jason Aldean uses these and he gets good results. E-G sound amazing, nice and even… Too bad the B string sucks!

    I’ve been buying these for years from I agree with Wayne, really good E-G with a weak be. I’ve moved on to kalium because the B string is boss along with the rest.
