SIT (Stay in Tune) strings came on an LTD a bought recently. These are the worst strings I have ever had the misfortune of playing. They should be called SOOT (Stay out of Tune). Anybody ever had experience with these? Maybe I just got a defective set? The tone was good but that was all. Went back to D'Addario strings and everything seems better.

Try to put a few spins around the tuners and also after you tuned your guitar take a little piece of cloth and stretch strings!
Let me know if it works!

Never tried those but it could be that they needed more stretching indeed..?

Could be, I always stretch the strings vertically and horizontally quite a bit, after I place them fresh on the axe smile.gif
