Backwoodsman strings for dadgad tuning (34) RE: strings for dadgad tuning 22 Jul 21


”As has been pointed out string choice is a personal matter and one size definitely does not fit all.”

Never a truer word spoken, Gilly! What strings this or that player uses is immaterial - what matters is the string brand/gauge/material that suits each individual. The only way to crack that nut is by trial and error, buy different sets and try them until you find the right ones for you.

FWIW, for DADGAD on my Lowden, I use the ‘True Medium’ gauges you mention above, but in GHS Phosphor Bronze, set #TM335. Nice, warm-sounding strings.
