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 just bought an epiphone hummingbird, my first acoustic, the previous owner said he had just put on EB earth wood lights , I guess they were .11 or .12 high E string. They sounded very good ,strings or guitar not sure but I broke the high E while cleaning and dressing the frets. I replaced it with a string I had laying around with a little corrosion on it. So I entered in to the world of acoustic strings. I have been using D'Addario strings on my electrics for many years, they hold up nicely. So I thought I would try their acoustic strings. I bought the E11 , E14, and E 16 , at first I was not so sure if they sounded as good as the earth woods. But after a week or so of playing the E11's they seem lively with a very nice full sound. Although it seems the high E is a little less prominent. Once again this is my first acoustic and the strings are heavier then I am use to. I may not be putting enough pressure on the High E to get a clear bright tone. The more I play the better the strings seem ,, or maybe I'm just getting use to the heavier strings. I would say that they perform as advertised. I will try the E14's next. Gonna wear these out first.

        I have D'Addario strings on 4 acoustic and 8 electrics. I have used these strings for years. They have excellent tone and have very good longevity.

          I play a smallish Martin 000-16 and a biggish Lowden F25c. Use these strings on both. No "coated" (muffled) strings for me. These guys let the sound of these two beautiful gits shine.

                These strings are great for anyone who has a darker sounding guitar if you want to coax a little more chime out of your acoustic, espicially for flat-picking and strumming. I find I am able to do bends with them easier than other brands of the same composition. D'Addarios are known to be brighter strings from the get-go and 80-20's especially.

                I like these better than the phosphor browse strings. They seem easier on my fingers and easier to bend. Will be purchasing them again.
