Personally I found the coated not much to my liking. Seemed to take the mids down a bit. They were ok but the compression wrap on the standard gives me a nice long life so I'll stick with them. They are worth a try, they're only strings  btw, I do Prefer DR Sunbeams with a custom gauged 14 & 18 in place of the 13 & 17 that comes in the standard pack, they are my go to strings.

I've been playing light elixir nanowebs... great set of strings and they last longer than any other that I have used. They stand up to the oils from your fingers that deteriorate string life. Less changing strings and more playing... They are a little spendy but well worth the dough.

I only use Elixar Polywbs on my OMO3re. They last forever and do not change tone from beginning to end, a month or two with 1 or 2 gigs a week. They are so easy on the fingers, Cleartones were very hard on the fingers, that's why I hated them.  I dislike Martin strings, esp the bronze ones. I used John Pearce for a while but had to change them every other week.
 This last weekend I put new Elixars on, and mistakenly bought mediums instead of light, and to my ears, although louder, they do not compliment the smaller body and tone of my OM.  the ability to play a month or two without having to change strings is a big deal to me. Many of my friends here feel the same, but there are still plenty of musicians here(St.Louis) that will never use any brand of coated strings.
  Thanks for all the information!

Curt Mangan strings are available at the Music Tree (musicgrowshere.com) with free shipping, no minimum. Fusion Matched phospor bronze are $7.99 a set, for instance.

Have been happily playing my Larrivee since my last post. Then last week I walked into the 12th Fret - just to look - and walked out with a Marc Beneteau Dreadnought. Sonic Honey.... drool

..but are we ever satisfied? I just know I'm going to get sucked into starting another obsessive round of the string game all over again!!!!  wacko
