I have been using these strings for over 30 years, and they remain the best and brightest strings I've ever used. They are high quaity and last over time. I had to case up my guitar for over three years. When I finally opened it, my guitar was still in tune and the strings were as bright as the day they were purchased. These are the only strings I'll ever use.

These strings sound good for about one or two weeks, but after that they sound dull and lame, unless you keep it in a dry, cool, and perfect environment. They also turn brown after a while, and they don't look very good. I am sticking with my guns on this one. Martin, baby.

          Comments about D'Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

          I have played music professionally for years. I followed a lot of trends. Coated strings, different metals. Every single time I came back to the D'Addarios. They sound great out of the box and IMHO they sound better after they've been on a few days. I have everything from parlors to dreadnoughts and mini jumbos. These strings are perfect for all of them. The biggest plus is buying them in three or ten-packs for even better value. Try out a few sets. You'll be very pleased.

              No more imported strings for me. They like my
              Instruments must be made in the U. S. A. These
              strings are of superior material and craftsmanship.
              The tone tells the story. No easy breakage here.

                          Free shipping at this site is a plus, just wish for consistent pricing. Bump it up and the shipping's not free.

                              I buy and sell guitars as a hobby. I use cheap strings on guitars for sale.. On my personal guitars where Im looking for sound, quality, and ease of play, after years of "experimenting" with other brands I keep coming back to D'Addario strings.. I pretty much think they are the best strings for any price {And they are very competitively priced} These strings are what I use on My D45 Martin.. ..
