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.

I have these strings on my Martin 000-15M and am not a fan. They don't bend easily nor is it easy to move across the fretboard. Yes there are friction sprays that can be applied but don't last long/have to be reapplied. I only tried these strings because of the reviews and at a cheap price but will pay extra for Elixir's which are fantastic.

              I've tried many other strings over the years and D'Addario has remained consistently dependable for crisp, bright tone quality and long lasting even though I generally don't utilize their ability for longer life but, I know I can in a pinch. They have consistently been the best performer for acoustic/acoustic electric and my electric guitars as well.
