I bought guitar strings, I put them on my guitar. Now I am playing my guitar. When the strings wear out I will replace them. These strings seem as good as any. Not too jangly and I like that. Buy them if you want to. Or buy another brand.

    Comments about D'Addario EJ16-10P Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

    For at least 15 years, the only strings that I use on my acoustic guitars. They feel good, stay in tune, sound great, and hold their sound for a reasonable period of time. I buy the 10-pack, and it lasts me a year.

    EJ16's A number One Choice

    By Bert Fonte

    from Heart of The Rockies

    See all my reviews

    Comments about D'Addario EJ16-10P Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

    I've been playing professionally for 32 years. D'Addario EJ16's are the "only" strings I use. Why? Because they have a great feel and tone and last for weeks without breaking. My style of playing is solo acoustic hard rock, country, jazz and R&B. If you are looking for strings that don't cost an arm and a leg, stay in tune and don't break after 4 or five songs then this is choice number one. On the other hand if you like paying for expensive coated strings that break often then chose another brand. Again this is a professional choice based on years of trying every string under the sun. D'Addario EJ16's rule!

    The tone is great on these and they work great on all 3 of my Carvin's, AC275 thin line, AC375 medium sized and C350 full sized, all made from different woods and in different ways.
    Conclusion, good for any acoustic and any type of music. I play mostly Christian Worship and my son plays all kinds of metal and they never let either of us down. Never broke a string and when wiped down last several months com paired to one month or led with other brands I've tryed.
    They them, you'll love them!!

      Use 'em on my cedar-top cutaway. Don't perform much anymore, but play daily. Never broke an EJ16 and I play mostly Tommy Emmanuel stuff. I can't justify changing strings frequently and these D'Addario's play well, stay in tune and stay on my guitar longer than I'd care to admit. Good sound, good price & free shipping @ MF!

      Seriously, save your time & money and just buy 'em

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about D'Addario EJ16-10P Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

      When I first started playing, I was given a set of EJ16s and was told to just get D'Addarios. But I had to learn for myself. I bought all kinds of different strings, and never once found one that compared to these, not even the D'Addario EXPs were worth the extra cash, and nothing else came close to the combination of sound, endurance and playability. I've been playing for many years now and never has one broken.

      Bring your guitar to life

      By believethehype

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Comments about D'Addario EJ16-10P Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

      Man...I bought a high end used acoustic guitar and whoever strung it before I bought it put horrible strings on it. Made the guitar sound awful. I was hesistant in buying the guitar even though my heart was set on it because of how bad the strings made the guitar sound. I was given these D'Addario EJ16 strings by the salesman at Guitar Center, along with that same guitar and was told to restring it and I wouldn't be disappointed. Oh man, did it make it sound beautiful. I love these strings. Yeah, they don't last long if you've playing gigs constantly. But hey, an active musician is supposed to change their strings often anyway. You won't be disappointed with the sound you get from these. Bright and warm. Everyone loves the sound of my guitar...it'll be hard for me to find something better.

      I have used these strings for years and this company consistently puts out a great product. As a guitarist with exceptionally sweaty palms, I find this string holds up best. Although they tarnish and may look bad, they retain a cool and clean tone.

          These are my go-to strings and on a good guitar they sound great. With these strings I don't have to change strings very often at all and have never broken one. Bought this 10 pack deal, and was happy with the pricing of it as well.

            For me, the jury is still out on these strings. I have not used enough sets to say they are as good as my all time favorites. A Phosphor Bronze light string feels and sounds right for my style of playing. I will have to update this review someday. They do sound nice though.

                I play both folk & bluegrass, mostly rhythm but with some finger picking, and I have found these strings to be responsive, consistently "in tune", and I have never suffered from broken strings with them. I use them on my Taylor 514CE and my Takamine Santa Fe with great sound.
