I seem to stand alone in the thought that Kitty string is not that good. They burn out within a couple hours, feel awful, and lose color vibrancy by the minute. They fail to hold tension soon after install and fray very quickly.
Yes they are cheap - they feel cheap.
Yes they are available by the 100 (red flag that youll go through them so fast and make lots of trash)
They also claim to be “hand made” but I dont buy that for a second. Shady marketing?
Maybe i am just being picky but everyone seems to love them, yet I find very little to like about them. Ive tried them a few times (fat, thins, but not tried the nylons yet), and well, they just dont jive with me. I tend to prefer quality over quantity. Maybe ill try the nylon ones, but I just hear so much good about kitty from all sides, and I just dont see the allure of having to swap out strings every coupe hours of play. For me thats several strings in a day potentially. Seems wasteful in money, time, and trash buildup.
What do you think? Is kitty your savior string? Or do you prefer something a bit better built?
