Strings similar to EJ46's but brighter? 

What are you guys finding are comparable to Ej46 strings in terms of tension but are brighter/snappier in tone? I have one guitar that isn't liking 46's much as it just makes it sound too classical and thick. I've been down the carbon string path and really can't stand them so I'm looking in the nylon realm only.

luthier: 20 or 30
hannabach: superlow tension 815 or 827 (the peach colored trebles)
aranjuez: 200

definately the T2 titanium trebles, they come in a new 6 pack which includes the basses, and according to D'addario, it's different fromthe composite and it'll be a little brighter.

cheers

You better buy composite basses and T2 trebles separately from Strings By Mail. Its the same and cheaper.

But i prefer D' Addario 45.

I really suspect that it's the same basses as the composites as well.. but the d'addario customer service guy replied that it's slightly different, I've never tried it so would have no idea.. =)

I have tried them both. They have the same feeling at your fingers and somehow the same sound...
