"I have been using D'Addario strings for longer than I can remember. I started out like anybody else thinking, 'How am I ever going to afford the strings that I want?' Muscisians go through, unfortunately, trying all sorts of strings. It's an expensive proposition to 'try' new strings for a while. It's devastating when you can only afford a few packs and then they break or they go bad after a couple of songs. So we're always on a quest for strings that not only sound well but also perform really well in the real world. Whether it be during intense rehearsals, intense practicing on a stage, in a tiny place or in a big place with weather changes, whatever, playing in the backyard, or playing the back of a truck in February in Manhattan. Whatever it is you got to do, those strings are your life line."
