So I tried something different and got some Throbak Vintage Choice (pure nickel, round core) and went right back to my trusty Regular Ernie Ball Slinky. The Throbaks killed what I like to hear in the wound strings. No bark. All the cool low string riffs sounded weak and the percussiveness attenuated. I tried adjusting the pole piece screws to no avail. I guess hex core and nickel plated steel is what I like to hear for my more hard rock playing... as always YMMV!
