I'm a giging and recording singer/songwriter, and I use to use GHS brand strings. A friend of mine recommended D'Addario strings and later I stumbled onto these custom lights. They hold up on fast driving country and are killer for acoustic lead parts. They handle bends very well without breaking, unless you have a snag in your saddle on your guitar which can cut them and cause them to break. The intonation is fantastic when I play them on my Takamine electric acoustic. And when i"m playing through a sound system, they make my Takamine sound like i'm usig medium gage strings. They seem to last a very long time, and will last longer if you wipe the strings with a clean rag after each gig. The only time that I feel that they haven't lasted is when playing in outdoor shows. But any string is going to drawl moisture on outside gigs and probably go dead, unless they are coated with something. And I'm not a big fan of coated strings, because they just don't have that great of a tone. If you get these strings you won't be dissappointed, I just wish they would offer them in the 10 pack.

I use D'Adarrio electric strings with no problem but the acoustic is a different story.
I can't seem to get through a single 3 hour gig without breaking the G string.
More often than not, the D string will break too.

Also, they seem to lose tonality very quickly.

I think guitar strings should last a lot more than one 3 hour gig!!
I'm convinced they *can* make strings more durable, they want us to BUY MORE!
As expensive as they are, breaking strings every gig is inexcusable.

    Comments about D'Addario EJ26-3D 3-Pack Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Really excellent strings. Light on the fingers and makes string bending easier. I use them on most of my acoustic guitars now. I used to use regular lights until I found these but now these are are my
    favs.

    Since I have smaller hands these strings work very well for me. Not too light, not too heavy. Plus they last a good length of time. I buy the three pack which is really a good buy.

    Comments about D'Addario EJ26-3D 3-Pack Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    In twenty five years of recording, gigging, etc., I've used just about every string you can think of and D'Addario consistently rises above the competition. They LAST, they sound great, they're reasonably priced and STAY IN TUNE. While there are some brands that last longer, you have to pay twice as much. Handmade strings consistently disappoint and weird coatings just ain't cool. My only gripe? NOBODY makes a set (electric OR acoustic) in EXACTLY the gauges I want (10 - 48 electric) but these 11-52 acoustics made me forget about mixing gauge/sets and appreciate the ease of buying only ONE set per guitar. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED... unless you have no ear to begin with.

    Comments about D'Addario EJ26-3D 3-Pack Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I have a nice Ovation 1778 Elite LX which has very nice action and a nice deep tone. I'm primarily a "lead" guitar player and I like to bend a lot. Why struggle with heavy strings? I'd argue the dynamic range between these gauges and heavier ones are negligible, especially if recording direct or amplifying. These strings are easy to play, sound good and last a fair amount of time. I always recommend this series.

    Comments about D'Addario EJ26-3D 3-Pack Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I have tried every brand out there over my 46 years of playing. D'Addario strings are the best acoustic guitar string in all categories. Save yourself some time and buy this brand. Phosphor Bronze and 80/20 work best for me, depending on which of my guitars I have them on. i play fingerstyle and use 11s, 12s, or 13s, depending on altered tunings, different guitars and such. You will like the sound and the feel of these strings.

                It sound different from the EXP13 that I'm accustomed to. Need to play with it a little longer to find out more about these strings. But I notice these strings don't buzz as easy as other strings. I over adjusted the nut on my guitar, so other strings tend to buzz on open. However, I don't have any buzzing problem with these strings.

                Playability is good. Don't know how long it can last though. The EXP13 last a long time, but these strings are only 50% the cost of the EXP13. If it last half as long as the EXP13, it still worth it.

                      Tonal quality and durability are superb. And the custom gauge is great for beginners with sensitive finger tips or old school rockers who are beyond just strumming.

                            I have been playing the guitar for 56 years & performed with some of the best entertainers around. I use Dadarrio strings, both light & custom light. These strings have NEVER failed me in any way. I give them an A Plus. The only other strings I use are a brand called San Diego, but only for practice sets. I'm very thankful for Dadarrio strings.

                              No problem with the strings. Always have liked D'Addario strings. The problem is the shipping package
                              gets smashed to heck and so does the string boxes. This causes the high e string to poke through the seal of the string package. Just pushed it back in and taped it up. Maybe a shipping box would be better.

                                    So far I am very satisfied with the strings I have just started using these strings the bends are much easier then regular acoustic lights, have not had any breakage yet great tone not overly bright or tinny sounding, I haven't noticed much difference in the sustain. We will see how long that lasts. If they continue to perform as well as they do now and don't go dead to quickly, I will continue to use them. I haven't played them long enough yet to say if I would recommend them.
