The first thing to say is that the materials are very good quality almost same as Ernie Ball by my experience, not too slick and not too rough.The feeling with this set is fine and have an overall quality and durability feeling. Raccomended if you are using standard tuning. The sound is clear and with a good punch indeed which is something I pretend from a good string set. It is not the best sounding set I have played but it is fine. Never had a problem with breakage till now and it is a good reason for staying with this set. A very important feature by Daddario is the anti-corrosion bag: other and most expensive brands don't have this simple but for me very important feature. You can keep them for more than one year without the chance to find rusted strings once you need them. I suggest to buy them in big stock for a long lasting storage.
