I bought those strings as an experiment,since I was looking for the softest acoustic strings I could find.

Sound:As you would expect from 8 gauge strings,Extra Slinky lack in volume.That could be acceptable in recording situations,but can prove problematic when playing live without the assistance of a pickup or transducer.
I firstly tried the strings on my normal size acoustic.In my ears the sound was thin and especially lacking in the low end.Suprisingly though,I got quite a nice,balanced result when I recorded some samples,placing the mic in such a way that captured quite a bit of the guitar body.
Then I tried the strings on my tenor guitar.I found the sound to be just fine,probably because of the smaller soundhole,the fact that tenor guitars lack the two lowest strings and the "bassy" character of my guitar.
What I also loved,is that those strings are really quite.You can change chords,slide and bend,with minimal finger noise.

Light gauge strings ... pros and cons?

I've always liked Ernie Ball strings ... I've tried other brands over the years but always find myself coming back to these.

I used a made up set for the past twenty year (gauges 009, 011, 014, 024, 032, 038) when I noticed a set of Extra Slinkies at a local store and thought that I'd give them a try and found them to be as nice to use ... oddly enough the 008 high E string felt a bit odd initially, but after about an hours use I got used to it and now use them on all of my guitars ... i.e. 21 and 22 fret Strats and an Ibanez Jem.

The worries I read about light gauge strings are unfounded in my view ... they are nice to use, string bending is far easier and on an electric guitar the gauge makes little difference. I have found nothing wrong at all with these at all ... for me they are the perfect fit.

Give them a try ...
