Long lasting!
Oxo Cube , 23.10.2020
These things last for ages!

I put these strings on an all mahogany acoustic, a Guild - you can feel they are very good quality, and they resonate very well - really great for finger picking and also for bends, the sound is very full. I play quite often and although I don't change strings religiously these have lasted rather longer than usual - I almost didn't want to change them they sounded that nice. As I like to experiment with a few different types, I will try something else to compare, but I have no negative feedback and I would definitely return to them without a doubt.

So if you look for something a little bit different from the phosphor bronze I'm sure you will not be disappointed. Excellent service as always!

Screamy, but can add a touch of vintage sound
Thomusicman, 21.01.2016
I bought the strings, searching for some deviations of the standard Phosphor Bronze strings. So, comparing to your default D'Addarios or Martins these strings produce a bit more dry, crunchy yet bright and well-balanced sound. Probably, to the aforementioned general sonic qualities the strings tend to "scream" rather than compress when played really hard.

Overall, I like Ernie Ball quality and I am using the other 80/20 set for my all-mahogany guitar. What comes to these particular Aluminium Bronze set, I will rather use one when I'll need to add a vintage touch to a modern acoustic.

Not your father's strings...

These are a noticeable difference in sound. More punch in the mid-range and bass. The highs are not as pronounced. Really what my sapelle guitar needed. I'm waiting to see how long they last. I think these will probably replace the Martin SP Phosphor Bronze set I used to use.

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