For anyone who cares:

I just tried some DR Sunbeam (lights) and they were pretty good, and were right there with the Ernie 80/20’s.
The lower string tension really made for some easy fretting.

I currently have on some Ernie Ball PB Paradigms in med/light, and so far they Have edged out any string so far.
When I play finger style (Blackbird & Tears in Heaven) the low E string rumbles against my gut.
(Kind of funny that the regular Ernie Ball PB’s in the same gauge were lackluster.)
Also, I had these same Paradigm strings on my daughter’s D35 and she had me immediately take them off - I played it and they were just so so. That D35 is a beast.
These strings weren’t cheap, so I put them right on the Larry - sounds lively as heck.

I have some Martin PB’s and DR Rares to try next - both in med/light.
Cheers

You can read some of my previous posts in this thread on the strings that I have tried so far.
This guitar was setup by my Luthier, with specific attention to the nut slots.
I have pretty much decided on light strings - lights are easier to play and they are able to drive this top, it’s a pretty loud guitar.
I also have decided on PB strings. I want the warm, bassy, overtone sound of Rosewood.

I just took off the Ernie Ball Paradigms, and threw on the new Martin Treated (Lifespan 2.0) PB’s lights.
Sounds really good. So far it’s a toss up between these and the Paradigms.

I have the same Martin strings to try next  “untreated”.
