    FretNation does things right!

    Quick, easy order, fast, free shipping. And I know they will remember my order even if I can’t. So if I want to reorder, it’ll be easy.

    Best place for strings, all things Dingwall, singles, and odd requests like mixed length sets of TI jazz flat for a longscale Dingwall.

    As far as the Dragon Skin Quantum nickels, I’m still on the fence. First time I’ve tried a coated string. Usually I go with nickel, and nickel alloys, because stainless strings chew my fingers and feel raspy and sticky. I like the smooth of nickel.
    The Dragon Skins feel like they are in between stainless and nickel. A little rougher feeling than I expected. I’m not sure if we are going to get along. I’ll give it a few weeks to break in and get some grease and sweat and funk on the strings.

    Tension wise, they feel nice. A bit stiffer than I usually run, but nice.

    New, and just installed they are very bright. Good bottom, lots of high end, but I feel like they are missing the solid mids I like from the Pure Blues. Kind of scooped sounding. Definitely has me adjusting my eq.

    I’ll give them a month or two and see where they go.
