Kendrick pure nickel strings?

Is anyone using them? They look pretty cool according to the site. I've heard that they're very similar to SOB's. Any truth to that?

Yes there is truth to it. I used Dean Farley's Scalar strings, which were great, and his new Snake Oils which are also terrific. Somewhere between those two I ordered some sets of Kendrick nickels and they are right up there with Dean's strings. If there are subtle differences I can't hear or feel them.

I'd used SOB strings for many years but ended up switching over to Kendrick Pure Nickles about three months a go because of all the breakage and shipping problems I had with them.
I've found I actually like the Kendrick strings better, they're very close to SOB's in tone only better balanced and they don't have the breakage problem.

I did nickel for a while, and when I put my first set of stainless steel strings on after about a year of playing nickel, my girlfriend burst into the room and asked me what I'd done to sound so good.

I know it's all about what kind of sound you're going for, but this girl never has anything nice to say about anyone's tone... if I can impress her, I'm not going back to nickel strings.

she does, but the sister doesn't care much about music.

Actually, the ex-girlfriend in question has turned to a lot of hip-hop, and, post-split, doesn't want to associate musically with me. So both girls are pretty much out.
