Re: A few questions on Strings.
I've actually used a set of stainless steel strings once. They didn't corrode, but still you'd get dirt caught between the windings, so the sound quality decreased. Also they sounded quite 'raw'.
I can't recall the brand, it was a pretty unknown brand. I just tried them because they were cheap enough. The guage was also slightly different from normal string sets, probably to counter the difference in tension a bit.
But they do exist anyway.
