I'm not primarily an acoustic player.

I've played electrics almost exclusively and I play 10's with a low-action setup and it's what I've gotten used to. But I've always wanted to play an acoustic and have it around as a "pass-the-time" guitar. So when I finally bought one (a Martin X1DE) it came setup with 12's which, to me, feel more like cables than strings and they had to go. I tried some Martin 11's but I still hurt more than I played. I tried some Martin "modified" 11's (11-47) and it still felt as if I had to work too hard to play basic things.

Then I came across these D'Addario Extra Lights (10-47). I've always used D'Addario's in my electrics and I love them, so I figured that if I love them for an electric, they're worth a shot for an acoustic.

I put them on and I instantly felt comfortable and I found myself playing (and enjoying) my acoustic far more often than I had before. I no longer feel as if I have to get psyched to play this guitar and I pick it up and play it as naturally as I do my electrics.
Admittedly, the 10's sound somewhat "twangy" right off the bat, but if they're anything like the Phosphor Bronze strings I've been using, they should mellow out after a few weeks and if that happens, I'll be very happy and my left hand won't feel as if I've been kneading dough all day.

Maybe 10's won't "drive" this guitar (as the acoustic highbrow's say) like a set of 12's might and these strings might not cut it in large clubs or arenas. But for my couch or my back porch (or even mic'd up, I'd guess), these D'Addario Extra Lights are just what I needed!

Sorry, I've used these strings before with success and though they sounded great and strobed up after I put them on, I broke the G after the second time I used the guitar. I am a worship leader at a small church and play the strings about 30 minutes on Sundays and two hours per week at team practice. The strings had one service and one practice or about 2.5 hours of use when I broke the G. Usually a string will give me a "warning" when it is about to break but not in this case. Fortunately I am blessed with several guitars so it was not a real problem, just an inconvenience which will influence my opinion of the reliability of D'Addario EJ15 Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Strings. I have been playing for most of my life professionally and realize that a lot of factors play a part in determining the life of a string, none of which were much of an influence in this case.

        These strings are not bad, and the price is perfect, but for a Martin D28, they do lack the volume I have been accustomed to.They do certainly help my older fingers but I think that I am willing to go with slightly heavier "lights" at .012-.053 for a better sound. Ill admit mediums are too much for me, but the extra lights are well, light in sound for this particular guitar.

          Thee strings are fantastic! Bright! Great tone and easy to play! However, I long for the days of XXL 08-42. I don't know why string companies don't manufacture the XXL 08-42 sets any more.

            I use to play professionally, and when you are playing 4 to 5 nights a week, you have very strong fingers, in fact, it's natural, you don't even think about. Now that those days are behind me, I now play once in a while for myself. I have always used light strings, but I found playing once in a while, the fingers really started to hurt, so it dawned on me to try extra light. WOW! What a difference! I might even play more now.

                      Recently switched to a lighter gauge and these are working well for me so far.
                      Easier on the fingers, easier bends and more similar feel to electric.
                      Good brand, they don't last the longest but are very reasonable and sound good.
