Hello all...........I have EJ16's on my reso. I'd like to get a few ideas about what metals and gauges to use for recording WITHOUT using a slide. Finger style...no picks.....any and all help on brands and styles is gratefully appreciated! Thanks, Irv

for non-slide and fingerstyle you might be right there. you might even get away with lighter, say an EJ26 11-52 set.

i dunno that heavier necessarily translates to louder or fuller with resos, since the strings aren't really pulling on the cone and don't even press down with all that much force. (again, for non-slide playing)
