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.

    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 using D'Addario strings for years on my electric guitars. I had a set of Medium Martins on my acoustic electric that were hard to play. I bought these lights from Musicians Friend and really like them.

          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.

            You cannot beat these strings, If you get a magazine like " Acoustic guitar" note how many professional players use D'Addario 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.
