I now have a guitar that sounds very "tinny" and is not very enjoyable to play.
I have to agree with JB, strings have always been a very subjective discussion, what suits one will not suit another, as you have found out.
I tried Elixer once, and like you hated them; I agree they sound far too bright.
I've recently experimented with a few different makes/types (see thread by tcamp22 about a month ago). I tried Everly PHb. (recommended by Tommy Emmanual). Martin SP, DR Rare, but eventually came back to by regular string......D'Addario 80/20 bronze.
My advice?.......try different strings but once you're happy......stick with 'em!!
