AGuitarPlayer, 28.09.2019
I've purchased these strings partly out of curiosity. I play the acoustic a lot, mostly using the metal finger picks, and needless to say, that kind of abuse would wear out any strings pretty quickly. Usually, I would just buy more expensive strings, not even thinking about trying out the cheaper ones, because mostly my experience with the cheap strings were bad, but then I've stumbled on these when browsing here on Thomann. I've thought to myself; hell, why not give them a go, they are cheap so there's nothing to lose. After trying them on, I must say I was very pleased. The sound was bright and definitely a considerable and important improvement when compared with the used strings, and after about a month of usage they still didn't break, and that's what I really wanted. I haven't bought them expecting miracles, just wanted strings that will sound fresh and won't break easily, so the home practice and playing would be more enjoyable, and that's exactly what I've got. I would rather put these on my guitar once per week, and that would still be cheaper than one pair of the more expensive strings I would usually put on, which would soon wear out and then I would play on these worn out and dull strings for a month or more, before a new change.

That being said, in the case of recording or live performance, I would still go with the more expensive strings, like perhaps D'Addario or DRs, but for the purpose I've intended it these work out just fine, and when I take the price in the consideration, I feel it would be unjust of me to give them any less than the highest score.

Very Nice Strings
hixon1, 03.01.2018
I originally purchased these strings just out of interest at how cheap strings would be. However, I am extremely impressed by these strings. The value for money Is excellent. I have used many (including some very expensive) brands of guitar strings but these are pretty good. I like to bulk buy these so I have lots for gigs & recording. They worked well for me on my cruise ship contract and another guitarist aboard ended up asking about and buying these strings for his guitar. I recently did a recording session and put chose to use a nice fresh set of these strings on my Martin. The recording session turned out really well and is set for radio and tv play later this year. Therefore these strings are appropriate for professional use. The strings stay quite bright for a good week or two and don't show signs of rust for over a month ( I have a set on an old guitar that I don't play much !! ) . I'd recommend these strings

Great value!
17.02.2017
These Harley Benton strings are as good as it gets for the price. Really cheap but still reliable and they sound pretty good to my ears. I have been using them for some tiime now, acoustic and electric sets - they all seem to keep the tune and take the abuse pretty well Even after few months of heavy gigging with them - 3-5 times a week - they are still useable - and not one string has broken during all that time. A pleasant suprise for a working musician, cheap strings usually have low quality - they break often, or sound out of tune, or they simply do not sound good even when new from the box. These are the real deal, not good as some very expensive strings but they can keep up with any mid priced electric guitar strings. In my opinion wound strings sound a little darker but I actually like that. I would recommend these to anybody who needs quality strings at a great price. If nothing, you can buy a few packs just to have an emergency spare when needed, they will not cost you much and they will certainly deliver for the price you pay.

Surprisingly Good
B MacIntosh, 08.12.2020
In terms of tone and playability, these strings are as good as most of the big names (with the exception of a certain brand from Farmingdale which, in my opinion, is unbeatable) . I'm principally an electric guitar player, so my acoustics don't get much abuse, however longevity has been surprisingly good for a budget product. I bought quite a few of these in the expectation of having to change them more often, but as it turned out I haven't needed to do this.
