Optima Gold Acoustic Light guage.

Nicola., 24.06.2013
These are literally the best sounding strings I have had the pleasure of playing on my Santa Cruz OM guitar. I tried Elixir, D'addario, Martin and DR strings. These Optima Strings suit my particular guitar best. The midrange is particularly bell like with sustain, clarity and punch. Slightly higher tension for the same guage than all the other brands which can be a plus or minus depending on the guitar you have. I will not be going back now.

It lasts forever

Mr. Bluesman, 04.05.2012
I've been playing Optima / Maxima strings on my electric guitars for ages. Because they really last forever. No oxidation. At some point the gold goes off.

Because I have always been very satisfied with the electric guitars, I have now tried acoustic strings. The result is different depending on the guitar: On my SingleCone Conti they sound very good, and since this guitar is not played every day by me, I will stay with it, because of the durability. On my Dreadnought they sound strangely when they're brand new somehow funny. They have a very warm tone, but with the handbrake applied, it seems to be jammed. This property is lost in the first week, which is exactly the same as for example PhorphorBronze without coating. The new Optima with my guitar can not release this crisp high range. When the strings are a couple of days, the sound is balanced and round, but not as loud and powerful as I think it is possible.

I play a guitar with solid cedar top and rosewood frames. Can be that with Fichte / Pallisander the thing looks completely different.

My recommendation: Buy and try. If the sound is good you have found the strings for life, then you do not change anymore ...
