Perpetuals with a different E string?
I love the perpetuals but I am having the worse time with the E string whistling. I thought it was the string itself so I put a new one on with no resolution. Anyone out there using another E string with success with their Perpetuals?
Thank you J! I have a goldbrokat E and I’ll try that!
If the Goldbrokat doesn't fix it, I guess you could try the Amber E which is a non-whistling string.
You should be able to use any similar tension E string, or even a different tension one. It won't hurt, but may slightly change the balance from G through E.
I put on a Goldbrokat E and no whistling! But I haven't tested it out enough to see if there is any difference in the other things. Thank you all!
Oops, other STRINGS :)
Jargar either Blue or Red E strings are awesome!
Try the Prim Lisa E. Very brilliant but warmer than many E strings. And it doesn't rust! It's made of stainless steel.
I never thought of trying a Prim Lisa E so will order a couple and try them out.
