    These 80/20's are wonderful strings. Good balance throughout the tone spectrum. My Huss and Dalton CM responds very well indeed! And you cannot get a better price than the six pack purchase. Once again MF customer service is truly second to none, a wonderful breath of fresh air in a world of empty promise advertising.

    Comments about D'Addario EJ11 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I purchased a few packs of D'Addario EJ11 80/20 to restring my Taylor 414ce, Taylor 614ce, and a few other high end and low end guitars, and I am very impressed. Compared to coated Elixrs (both Nanoweb and Polyweb) and to D'Addario EJ16 Phosphor Bronze, these D'Addario EJ11 80/20 strings are much more brighter and present. They provide a well rounded tone with ample clarity. These strings are really really worth trying out if your after a brighter and crispier tone with exceptional bass and mid response. Also, with proper cleaning and care, these strings will last a few months or so and still maintain sonic integrity. Enjoy

    Good Quality Strings

    Comments about D'Addario EJ11 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I replaced the elixirs on my big baby taylor with these last January and the sound just really amazed me. It's still in my Taylor and the color is still golden, not fading. The bell sounds and the bass is just right, they mix together very well. Also these strings are durable, they are light and fast, easy to play. Put this on your guitars, you won't be disappointed.

            These strings are easy and light on your fingers. I had them on my Big Baby Taylor and the Big Baby sounded so bright with ringing and warm bass tones. The sound is just excellent. Try them, you won't be disappointed.

                    I cannot claim to have experience with many different brands of strings. But, of the types I have used for acoustic guitar, the EJ11s have been the most consistently clean and clear. They ring true and bright, yet have a sweetness as well, giving me the perfect voice for all moods of playing. They seem to outlive others I have tried too, and I strongly recommend them.

                            These strings are the BEST acoustic strings I have ever played in my 13 years of playing! Swithced from Martin Lights on my 1978 Alvarez and I will never use another type of string again! Amazing clarity (I play in D#/C#) and killer low end with pleasing highs and perfectly bodied midrange! Love these things!

                                When I got my Martin 23 years ago I began searching for the perfect strings to maximize the qualities of my perfect guitar. Saw in Guitar Player mag that one of my favorite players, Pete Huttlinger, used 80/20s and then saw that a number of great players were using them. Tried 'em, loved 'em and have since used nothing else.

                                I knew it! These 80/20 Bronze strings sure do have a bright crip tone. Maybe when if I try the Medium gauge kind, the volume might be even sharper.

                                they are very good. Very good for your ears, fingers, and pockets. Cheap, the sound is crystal clear and strong. They're better than some of the Elixirs that I've used. Try them, I'm sure you'll enjoy the ringing and rich deep tones it has.

                                These strings are really, really bright right out of the package, but after they stretch they round out a little more. I personally like how bright these are, as the project great. And for the price, if you don't like em, just try something different

                                    I am the guitarist at church , so i need strings that both stay in tune , and hold their tonal quality for a long time. Works for hard strumming and quiet picking.

                                    I will only purchase strings at MF. Cheaper by half
