    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.

        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.. ..

                    Best I've found for my style of playing.
                    I have hundreds of hours on the set I installed in September
                    and the intonation is still great.

                                Started using these strings when I had my 1958 J45 worked on by a luthier in Nashville. He said that was all he used on his personal acoustic guitars as well as the ones he worked on. After playing them a while, I realized why. I'll buy nothing else.

                                Since I liked these so well I started using D'Addario strings on my Fender Jazz Bass as well as my 12 string acoustic and found them to be the same quality.
