Wow thanks, I didn’t know about the string coloring that way! Insightful indeed! I think these are the Tomastik Dominant strings, correct? Is the E, Tin plated? Or is it light? I’ve attached the image of my strings below.
I will definitely give it some time for the strings to “open up”. As for the E string, do you suggest getting a ball end or loop end? I see both recommendations having that option.
Many thanks again for the recommendations!
