I use these strings now on all my instruments. I've tried MANY other brands & gauges but non even comes close to these or the EJ16's. I've got all my band members & close music friends using these. I didn't even know about these until just over a year ago. We all used Fender strings but Fender gave me a dirty deal by not honoring their warranty on my prized Fender guitar, I used a set of the D'adarrio & I'm hooked! I keep a set or 2 of much cheaper grade strings in case a fellow musician breaks one & needs one, but only these EJ26 or EJ16's will go on my guitars. All musicians need to try them.

For some reason , even though I usually use Martin SP's , I decided to take a chance and order a 6 pack of these. Man do I ever regret that decision. Every set that I put on, only lasted 2-3 days tops, due to the fact that they would lose their tone very quickly. Also, they don't have that bright sound which I like to have on my Acoustics. I'm disappointed because when I was playing electric, D'Addario was the only brand I would use but, their Acoustic Strings are just horrible and a waste of money as far as I'm concerned.

      Good mellow sound with moderate volume

      By Jim M

      from Evans, GA

      Comments about D'Addario EJ26 Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      Good sound with moderate volume; not bad on the fingers, but a little noisy on upper strings when sliding from chord to chord.

      Comments about D'Addario EJ26 Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I've tried a LOT of different acoustic strings looking for a good balance of light strings with a lot of body that you get with thicker strings. This is a really good balance. The strings have a great, brilliant sound and last a long time. On top of that the price barely dents the wallet. Try a set.

            Good strings, but get the exp version for linger life.

            Comments about D'Addario EJ26 Phosphor Bronze Custom Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            I can't sat enough good things about D'Addario strings. Every so often, I try something different just to confirm that they make the best strings. They just seem to keep their tone and last so much longer than the other brands. As I said before, go for the exp versions and get even longer string life.
            Your basic acoustic strings. I do like the custom light gauge.
            D'Addario makes great strings. Great tone. Some of the longest lasting strings I've ever used.
            Great strings, but spend the extra couple bucks for the exp strings. They will last much longer.

              I used the EJ16 light guage in these for MONTHS. I do so many performances I needed a lighter string to be easy on the fingers. These EJ26 are nothing short of perfect. Try them, you'll love them.

              I have used several brands & gauges of strings, but I've found these, along with the EJ16's, are the best all purpose strings any musician could want. They're good for all types of music, they're very durable & WELL
              worth the price.
