Tranformed a great guitar into one I now want to play

WozaPT, 03.10.2018
I had a great hand built parlour style guitar built in 2008 from a music shop in one of the Colorado mountain villages which has a great tone and beautiful craftsmanship, but the squeal from the standard Martin strings it had been fitted with drove me mad to the point that it became the least used guitar in my set. I recently decided to look into ways of curing the squeal and discovered that the EFT16 were designed to eliminate this. So I ordered a set to fit to one of my other workhorse folk guitars just to see if they actually worked and what effect they would have on tone before committing to a set for the custom guitar. What a transformation! Squeal is hardly noticeable and the tone is perhaps a little less bright but for me the lack is squeal far outweighs this. I ordered more right away for the hand built which now gets regular use. If squeal drives you mad you should certainly give these strings a try.

Best of both?

Achi11es, 22.10.2013
I thought I would try out the FlatTops as a compromise. I had been using Round Wounds for my acoustics and detested the squeek playing up and down the fretboard. Flatwounds work well for my archtops, but produce a muffled sound acoustics, so thought I would try these. And am I very glad that I did. The EFT16s hold sustain and produce a fantastic tone. Plenty of character, volume and clarity.
