    As long as we're talking about strings, does anyone know what kind of strings Duane Eddy was using on his early hits?

    I know that there are Duane Eddy strings now, but I saw/heard him on a recent Gretsch video and the guitar he was playing had that bucket-full-of-coathangers sound that I am trying to get away from. Whatever he used to hit the charts, that ain't it.

    Thank you kindly.

    PS If you want to write in to say that other stuff matters, stifle it. I'm asking about the strings.
