I love this number since the first time I heard it back in the early seventies. Especially the horn arrangment on it.
Yeah, I like the arrangement, it's just hard to get past the singer's odd sense o ...

Tom, are the E 9th sets available in UK? Can't see them listed anywhere, only six string sets.
I can ship the NYXL E9th sets to UK, Malcolm. No problem.

I'm closing this topic as the guitar has been sold. (Meant to do that earlier.) Please continue your conversation in the Pedal Steel section of the forum.

My Carter D-10 (bought used) had them. They were too hot and harsh for my Mesa/Boogie amp. I replaced them with Tonealigners, and now I'm very happy with the sound of the guitar in any amp.

It's sort of a crapshoot on the wound strings. Often the core wire (which determines the tension) will be the same on adjacent gauges. The only way to be sure is to check them with a micrometer.
