I'm using them at the moment (10s and 10.5s depending on instrument, pure nickels). They're nice, feel good, but ... differences in string brands are subtle to me, at most. But yeah, I like the company too.
This thread is kinda dated now but... The dreaded spot doesn't bother me as much anymore. It is still there but seems to come and go in intensity as the weather changes and I adjust intonation and stuff, like @JJJ said.
Someone should make a TRC from lead and see if that helps without being a...
I am picky about intonation and probably do a fine check/adjust once a month (or when it’s audibly out of whack). My guitars do seem a bit sensitive to the environment in my house too.
2 of my 3 electrics also have a slight buzzy/pinched sound on high E and B around the 3rd fret (including my...

Of course I also look at HBII's. I am doomed.
That's hilarious. And did NOT work for me. I've got 4yr old twin girls and when shopping for my 594 online, they would always say "Daddy are you looking at guitars AGAIN?" Then I'd get evil eye from the wife.
I just picked up this little Orange Micro Dark with the 8 inch cab, for kicks and giggles.
It is a blast. Sounds great (at a sixth of the cost of the Mesa below it) and the headphone out is perfect for late night. It is much louder than you'd think, and the cleans are better than I expected...
