Attempting to find the Nick Drake sound
Phil Seniors 21.05.2020
I bought these as I saw a YouTube clip about trying to get Nick Drake's guitar sound. Obviously the type of guitar, picking technique and tuning are most important - but these strings already add another quality to achieving that tone...and i gather that they will sound 'more so' like Nick, as they become worn, and warmer. Would recommend.

Well balanced warm tones with clear highs

I use these strings on a Furch OM-32 spruce top, mahogany back. I play only fingerstyle, mostly blues. I'm very pleased with the balanced tone. I've played the NB 1252BT for a while but switched to these because the .022 G-string of NB 1252BT set wears too quickly. Also, the NB 1253 has a slightly tighter and thicker bass sound.

Usually I use D'Addario EXP16. Tried those since were new product and cheaper. Nice sounding when new. Becoming hard when older. Didn't last long, replaced after apx 3 months. Will not buy again.

I love these strings
LeonardS 10.12.2018
The moment you put these strings on something sounds differently. I simply love the sound of these strings. They feel well and met my expectations. To my surprise they do hold their sound very long and when I want to change them I always keep them on a little longer, yes even after a couple of months. I am a finger picker and I love the balance certainly when playing open chords. Give them at least a try would be my advice. You will hear the wood of the guitar immediately.
