Not much bass, but tension is really light
kozobrod, 04.05.2021
Put it to my norman acoustic guitar.
Now some frets ringing a little, I think that's because of light tension.
Sound is really bright, but not so loud as Cleartone phosphor bronze.

découvert pour l'electrique : posé sur ma folk
wino, 10.03.2021
Ayant découvert, initialement pour la guitare électrique, ce modèle de cordes avec revêtement de protection contre l'oxydation et l'altération générale, je ne ferait plus marche arrière. Jouer avec un son "éteint" de vielles cordes m'est désormais étranger. Je suis passé des Elixir optiweb (très bien) à ce modèle de corde plus proche du toucher habituel des cordes "usuelles" et je les trouve vraiment brillante pour une cordes avec revêtement.

Successors of Daddario EXP13
Tsf48c, 10.06.2020
I play a Takamine TSF48C. EXP16 were the strings they advised. I went to Elixir nanoweb but I prefered Daddario. I just went from EXP16 to EXP13 slightly lighter. Now Daddario changed its sets of strings. Those new XTAPB are just perfect for me. If you carefully wipe them after a session, they last a far longer time than plain strings. And they don't turn up dull!

Enttäuschend
psoulstar161, 11.01.2021
Ich wollte diese Saiten mal als Alternative zu den gängigen Elixir Saiten ausprobieren. Kurz: sie sind keine Alternative!

Der Gesamtklang ist zwar insgesamt voll und lebendig, allerdings nur für kurze Zeit. Nach knapp 1 Monat nehmen die Brilianzen deutlich ab und der Klang wird stumpf. Elixir Saiten sind zu diesem Zeitpunkt gerade mal eingespielt und halten bei mir gerne knapp 1 Jahr, auch bei sehr häufigem Einsatz.

Selbst die nicht-beschichteten Daddario EJ26 halten länger und klingen besser.

Ein weiteres Problem war, dass diese Saiten absolut stimminstabil waren und sich über den gesamten Zeitraum nicht gesetzt haben.

Für mich leider ( auch bei dem Preis) eine absolute Enttäuschung!

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