try Half-gaugeS

Guitarist - - Feature -

It’s pretty ob­vi­ous that the gauge (di­am­e­ter) of your strings will af­fect how your gui­tar plays. The big­ger the gauge the more en­ergy you need in your fin­gers to bend, for ex­am­ple, mean­ing dur­ing long gigs your left hand will tire more eas­ily and even an ex­pe­ri­enced player can ex­pe­ri­ence pain. Nu­mer­ous brands now offer ‘in-be­tween’ sets – 0.0085- 0.039”, 0.0095-0.044” and 0.0105-0.048” – that mean you can go up or down, in half-steps and no­tice less change.
