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.

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

          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.

                    Uncoated so don't expect them to last as long, but the brilliance when they are fresh is unbeatable.
