    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):

    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.

              These D'Addario strings are just good, solid, reliable guitar strings. Nothing fancy, but consistently good. Nice tone, nice longevity, consistent quality. One thing I really like about the D'Addario is the color coded ball ends...makes it easy to not get confused as to which string goes where. I also like the air tight packaging. Keeps out moisture and condensation.

                    Have used them for years and they have performed well. Keep your strings clean, always wash your hands before playing, and your strings will last.
                    Guy at the music store told me D'Addario makes strings that are sold under other brand names including Martin. Not sure about this but they're great strings.

                      EXP strings are great especially if you are not a daily player and want strings that will keep their tone and brightness longer than most. If you play the same guitar a lot they may not be worth the extra expense since you are changing strings more often anyway. In either case I stick with D'Addario. I've tried many others but always come back.
