I'm looking for some strings for my Martin that have a bit of a stronger bass response. I haven't experimented with many strings, and I've changed my mics a bit over the past year, so it's hard to compare some of the older strings I've used. I seem to remember liking the Thomastik strings I tried once (I can't remember if they were Plectrums or Spectrums, of even what the gauge was), but I feel like there was something about them I found to be missing. I love the sound of a mahogany guitar, especially since I mostly play fingerstyle and it has great dynamics for a more folksy sound, but the low-e (or D or C, depending on the tuning) doesn't seem to hit the mix very well. The low fundamental isn't quite strong enough, and the overtones on the low E and A seemed to be a bit overpowered by the tendency of the unwound b and e strings having so much more twang to them. Does anyone know of a set with a more powerful E and A string? I don't know whether to look for heavier gauge strings, of if a lighter pair will keep the balance stronger. I can't even remember which strings I've played were round core, hex core, or had silk-inlayed cores.
