Topic: Squeaking strings
I bought a new set of strings for my Ovation. I initially bought a set of light .12-.053 D'Addario's Phospher Bronze strings. I hated them. They sounded bad and squeaked terribly. So I went back to Guitar Center, told them of my problem and asked for a better set of strings that would cure this. They sold me a set of Martin lifespan SP MSP7200, .013- .056 Medium strings. Though they sound alright (but not great) I still have the squeaking problem especially when sliding up and down the fret board. Is there a solution to this problem short of throwing them away and purchasing an expensive set of coated strings? I do not have this problem with my Fender, but it does have the more expensive coated strings.
Any help will be greatly appreciated,
