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.

      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.

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

      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.

                  I'm trying these lighter gauge strings to help me play "cleaner" chords, especially barre chords. They sound nice and bright, but still have a decent bottom. They are a "baby step" down (in gauge) from the EJ16s. I'm using these on a Guild acoustic. I may have to tweak the truss rod or learn how to play correctly.

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

                      I replaced the original strings on a 99.00 guitar I picked up new at the pawn shop. This set sound brighter and don't seem to stretch as much as some cheaper brands I have used in the past.

                      I love them and will probably use these from now on.

                      Great value.Great sound. Great strings
                      very good quality. for beginners just starting to restring their acoustic the color coding of the strings is great.
                      Great value. some will say elixer. but, d'addario strings are the EXACT same. just without the coating of elixers, which means not fuzzing
