I use Elixir Nanoweb strings, PB lights.  I like them on my two Larrivee's, not so much on my other guitars where I tend to use Dads EXP 16s.  A well known Canadian guitar guru has just been concerting through the area, and he plays Wyres coated and swears by them.  Can anyone enlighten me.  Their website is http://www.wyresstrings.com:80/about.asp.

I spoke with the owner of Wyres last year regarding a promotion that I was doing.  He was a pretty good guy to talk with and gave me the lo down about his manufacturing facilities and such.  He lives in Toronto, I believe. 

The funny thing is that while I did put a set of Wyres on one of my guitars, I don't recall my impressions.

Jimmy B,
So what would you compare them too?  Local recording artist and acoustic Guitar guru Ken Hamm says they are great, but I am wondering in what direction, if you get my drift?
