Thread Name: rejuvenating old guitar strings.
Subject: RE: rejuvenating old guitar strings.
There's such an enormous - and certainly for any new player, probably bewildering - choice of guitar strings on the market. I suppose it was much simpler when the choice for a lot of us in the UK seemed to be limited to 'Cathedral' or 'Rotosound' - or Gibson or Martin (if you were rich enough!!). Guages weren't often discussed..... I eventually discovered Ivor Mairants Bronze strings. They weren't expensive and sounded good and to return to the main theme of this thread, I boiled them perhaps two or three times before putting a new set on.
