Good strings but not for all guitars.
WilliamSats, 19.02.2021
I use these strings on two acoustic guitars. The quality of the alloy is very good and they last for few months before starting to loose their brilliance (sound-wise talking).
Their sound is good if you play unplugged and feel is nice and soft, but in "plugged" situations the signal (from the onboard preamp) was weak and a bit unbalanced from the wounded strings, so i guess that this has to do with their "Thin Core".
So if you're looking for strings to have a soft feel to play unplugged they're a very good choice but if you're planning to plug your guitar to an amp then i suggest to go for a regular set of strings.

Klassischer Klampf-Sound für Nicht-Jumbos
Markus209, 20.02.2020
Hab sie auf meine Ibanez AEW40AS aufgezogen, weil mir die bisherigen 12er-Saiten von Martin oder Yamaha darauf einfach zu stramm waren und der Sound zu flach.
Diese hier klingen sehr offen und mittenlastig, im Bass naturgemäß eher dünn, die Höhen z.Zt. noch sehr metallisch-spritzig, mal schauen, wie sich das in zwei Wochen nach ein paar Stunden Spielzeit anhört...

Insgesamt ist die Klangcharakteristik angenehm, gut geeignet für kleinere Gitarren ohne den typischen Jumbo-Bauch in den Bässen, man bekommt eher den typischen Dylan-artigen Folk-Klampfen-Sound, der einer Small-Body-Akustik gut zu Gesicht steht. Passt gut zum Begleit-Fingerpicking entsprechender Songs oder auch für gelegentliches Akustik-Blues-Geschrammel - dank der niedrigen Saitenspannung gehen die einschlägigen Techniken wie Bendings und HammerOns/Pull Offs dann auch sehr flüssig von der Hand und es klingt schön drahtig nach Robert Johnson & Co.

Qualität insgesamt ist wohl auch so weit i.O. Sie waren - nach dem üblichen ein, zweimal von Hand dehnen - direkt nach dem Aufziehen stimmstabil, ich konnte auch keine Verarbeitungsmängel festellen. Die Verpackung ist aber leider ein echter Kunststoff-Tsunami, dafür einen halben Stern Abzug. Muss denn wirklich jede Saite nochmal einzeln in Plastik eingeschweißt werden? o.O Dennoch: Wenn die Haltbarkeit sich als einigermaßen ok erweisen sollte (bei einem Preis an der 10€-Grenze möchte ich sie nicht unbedingt alle 2 Wochen wechseln müssen...), könnte das meine neue Standard-Besaitung für diese Gitarre werden.

Top !
Volker_H, 16.10.2019
Ich hatte ja so immer meine Probleme mit Saiten für meine Ovation.
Hunderte unterschiedliche Saitensätze probiert, aber nie haben Sound und/oder Bespielbarkeit für mich gepasst.
Mit den Saiten von GHS bin ich jetzt tatsächlich mal zufrieden, wobei ich als "Jazzer" gerne etwas dickere Strings habe und das nächste Mal die nächste Stärke nehmen werde.
Grundsätzlich: tolle Saiten, super Bespielbarkeit durch geringen Saitenzug und 1A-Sound.

Gute Saiten mit klarem Klang
PatsyB, 23.11.2019
Hi, die Saiten sind für den Preis sehr gut und haben einen warmen Ton. Sie sind sehr Stimmstabil. Einziger Nachteil Sie reagieren recht stark auf Schweiß :-)

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