Great quality and reliability
Randyboy, 14.04.2019
I've been using these strings on all my acoustic guitars for over 20 years. They sound great, feel great, and hardly ever break. I don't use any other string on tour.
Price-wise they are affordable, and I consider them a bargain with the quality and reliability they possess.

Excellent strings, amazing value!
06.09.2016
I've been playing guitar for over 25 years and in my opinion, these are the best strings money can buy!

The sealed packet keeps the strings mint unlike lower quality strings in paper bags getting oxodised.
Even when on the guitar for a long time, they don't turn green and sound horribly dull like a LOT of other string brands out there. I've tried a lot over the years and always, ALWAYS come back to D'Addario!

These are beautifully bright with a crisp low end, and are very comfortable to play.

This is personal preference to a point, but some other brand strings I find feel too grippy or too greasy (those plastic coated, dull and slimey type - yuck) or don't bend without ripping your fingers off -- and this is nothing to do with gauge or guitar the strings are on, or bad playing habits in these cases.
These are simply great feeling and sounding strings. I play fingerstyle/tapping and these are ideal for that - every subtle harmonic shines through, but these would be great for any playing style.

They stretch to perfection almost immediately so no almost going out of tune once tightened and tuned initially.
Each string has a colour-coded end (and a key on the packet) so it's immediately clear which string is which, so that's a nice touch.

To top all that off, the price is excellent! Crazy good value!

Very good
Bullyweeman, 18.05.2020
I've been known to buy cheap (and sometimes nasty) electric guitar strings, but I never skimp on acoustic strings. That said, these weren't/aren't the most expensive strings money can buy. What they are, are really good sounding, reliable guitar strings. Which for my money, makes them great value.
I'd actually had thes a while, before I started using them, and they didn't seem to have suffered from the lengthy storage time..

Price and Curiosity pulled me in
31.03.2016
This was another purchase I made for my son's needs.

Daddario is a brand I used in the early days of my own playing career and I had always been pleased. I encouraged my son to try these strings because I was attracted by price and the name.

These strings are what you'd expect from a leading manufacturer and they need to be good to satisfy my son's desire for quality. I often find that people can be influenced by price; but I am certain that price is not necessarily a great indicator of quality.

I have had the benefit of hearing my son's recorded parts in isolation for some time and I have to say that the Daddarios match up to anything he's used before, and he has used many of the top names in guitar strings. We tend to multi-track his rhythm guitar parts and then add his lead parts on top. In any part of recording, if you have something that's bad and you multi-track it (say a bad microphone), it will sound horrible when you have lots of them; and with these strings, my son's multi-tracked guitar parts sounded awesome.

The price is definitely right on these strings: Thomann have done it again! I will be coming back to buy more of these sets of strings.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
