comment How to use delay with distortion/overdrive and/or a crunchy amp?
If you're using a modeled amp, put the delay after the amp. You want to repeat the distorted signal, and not distort the repeated signal. The first will sound cleaner, the latter more "chaotic" for lack of a better word.

I think I'm on the second set from that package - the first one had the same issue for my ears.

Great points! On my other guitars, I'm mostly playing 10-46 Pure Nickel strings, so it might be indeed my imagination, comparing the "old" 9-42's to the heavier ones on my Les Paul. I don't live near the ocean, and yes, they're still sealed in a plastic bag. The D'Addarios come in a cardboard wrapper, then inside all six strings are packaged together in a single plastic bag. I guess I'll just buy a new pack of 9-42's to compare them against.
