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.

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.

                  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.

                          I spoiled myself and purchased a triple 000, short scale so I needed heavier strings. This is my brand, so this was my choice.

                            I bought these strings because I had multiple acoustic guitars to re-string and these were very well priced, come in packs of 3 and had good reviews. The Value of the pack is unbeatable,3 packs of decent strings at an unbeatable price. They feel ok, bend well, and have a good full sound for about 10-12 hours. After 12 hours, these string have already begun to sound like they have weeks of use on them. The sharp sounds have already left the strings but this is still a very good deal at 13-14 doll hairs. I would reccomend if your servicing more than one guitar and just using these for practice at home.
