... but I thought the surgical tubing was to minimize resonance feedback compared to springs. I did not know that "supposedly" there's a tone benefit.

I don't play close and / or loud enough for my amp to feedback.

Well, it depends if it is a nitro spring or a poly spring.

Before considering any opinion on this subject I would suggest that you run this thread on several other forums online that will give you a much more "informed" opinion on this little piece of minutae! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
