Thanks Bro!
I'm planning to use a set of the nickel wounds on my Modulus.

Sadowsky nickels on a Sterling is everything I wanted to hear. AWESOME in my humble opinion. [smilie=music-smiley-005.gif]

On my 35" scale Quantum 5 I tried out what Modulus recommended, (After countless calls to their customer service). The D'Addario XL Nickelwounds. They sound great and "piano'y". I still might give the ProSteels a try though. The price is great also. Check them out. The tension is also higher, which is the claim to the Piano sound, but with Modulus it's not a problem on the neck. Ken

I've been using the Blue ones for the last 9 months and really dig them, great price when you buy four and he gives you the fifth set free.

I have tried the flats. I like them, decent tension and thunky as hell.

I've tried the Blue Steels and didn't like them. Much too zingy for me.
