My new Kanilea tenor has a spare set waiting in its case, I really appreciate you posting that. I'm not sure what to think either, "muddy" seemed to be the best word for the reds, but they seem to have a special something to them. I will probably hold on to them until my ears become a little more experienced!

Much appreciated for the review and comparison!

The mystery of the left hand technique for the MGM sample is now on video! :) That's what I took away from the review...

Very interesting. Thank you for posting that.

Is the first set Nylgut or DD Nyltech. I know the Nyltechs are a collaboration with Aquila. Are they essentially Nylguts?

I made a mistake in video Its an Islander so its Aquila Nylgut but the D'adarrio nyltech is basically the same as Aquila...
