I bought these for lightweight 12-string electric-acoustic. I prefer to play reasonably light gauge strings as I don't have particularly strong fingers and don't play anywhere near as much as I should (mainly just in church on a Sunday with practice beforehand). These strings are just light enough but still pack a punch for heavy rhythm playing. The tone is sweet once you've got over the usual new-string tinny sound which doesn't take long at all. They are hard wearing too. So far they've last really well.
I'm not sure you'll get much better strings at this price point. I've tried several other makes but settled on Martin for both 6 and 12 string as they deliver every time.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?
Great value strings, not the best quality though

I can't even begin to say what great value these strings are, selling on thomann for well over a third of the price they sell for in my local music shops. They aren't the best quality strings in the world(personally I now prefer D'addario) but for the price you can't argue!
