Was the design of the standard Dingwall stainless steel long scale strings changed when the package was redesigned? The string gauges listed on the new black package are different from the gauges on the old white package. (But the individual sleeves inside the new package still display the old gauges.) I bought a new package many months ago. Just today, I finished my old supply and put on strings from a new-design package for the first time. I may be experiencing the placebo effect but I think these feel and sound better than I remember the white-package strings were when they were new. Again, maybe it's my imagination, but they feel a little tighter and "bolder." Maybe I should just change my strings more often. :oops:

So far I believe only the packaging has changed, but something's cooking in the Dingwall string's pot, I am not saying what it is or will be because I have only got a hint from the man himself and nothing is cast in stone yet, but watch this space because Sheldon is working on a new addition to their existing choice of strings. viewtopic.php?p=25750#p25750

We've been constantly tweaking the formula over the years. Since envelopes get printed by the thousands minor revisions to the string gauges don't show up in the packaging until the next major string pack revision.

I'm glad to know I wasn't just kidding myself. In my opinion, the tweeks have improved the strings. I might not have noticed it if I had been buying my strings one pack at time.
