Here are a couple of videos of new E strings. If you can bear through my tenseness and quiver let me know if you can hear a difference. Does one string over the other have a better tone/quality? Thanks. E string beta E String Delta

I do hear a difference. String Delta seems to have richer/round sound than the first.I find beta's sound weaker, a little more cold/clear/steel like but that can change after the string settles.

Ripton,

I agree Delta has a better sound than Beta I my opinion.
