I tried the stainless Lisa E...

I also tried the brassed Goldbrokat E. Was just a plain steel E after 5 hours of use.

Oh well.

I also had trouble being heard with it, and the tone was nothing special. Literally impossible to make it whistle, though. Maybe the higher gauges are better.

Out of subject-the other (older) Prims are good too, when steel strings are desired.
