The first impression is that a black string is "out of the ordinary" and thus should stay away from it. These strings look totally different from anything you have ever seen before. I had these strings for a while before I mustered the guts to try them on. Was I blown away after I did put them on! They completely changed the tone of my guitar which was good to begin with but is outstanding now. Life is also excellent as I have had them on for about three months now and they are still ringing. Everyone that sees my guitar with these incredibly ugly black strings wants to have a closer look. Then they strum it and then they want a set.

When you first strap these strings on your acoustic you will say that these strings will always be on your guitar that you will never buy a different brand. The sound you get out of these at first is just godly but that doesnt last long. The coating tends to come off really really really easy and not last long and once that happens the sound just diminishes from there. And these strings are rather expensive to, for something that gives you a godly sound and feel for only a few hours I say no to these strings.

Comments about Black Diamond Medium Gauge Black Coated Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I continue to but them!
I think these strings are great, they sound good out of the pack and the sound last a long time. I do howervr have a problem with breaking the bottom string, may be the way I play or default with the guitar, I'm not sure yet. I would recomend that anybody that plays a lot buy these strings.
They are a little pricie but I gladly pay the price for good strings

      Give these a try, you may love'em!
      Seem to be well made strings. Black Diamond is reborn and seems to be doing a great job with this string. I've only played one set but love them. The Black color and feel is unique but becomes really nice after awhile.
      the coating will wear off in time, but it helps the string last much longer and even it the coating wears off where the pick hits the strings, no big dea for me, the string still sounds good.
      I have 3 Martin Vintage Reissues, a 1995 Golden Era D18, one of 250 which is what I have used the BDs on and love the sound and feel. I plan on putting them on my HD28 LSV next. Both of these guitars are cannons!! My OM18 is my comfort guitar but has loose top braces right now from just being either too dry or the wood's moisture content wasn't right from the factory. I think maybe they use hide glue on these, not sure but is going back to the factory for repairs.

            These strings are way to expensive for what they deliver. I will stay with Martin strings.
