I've known this brand for a while now but only recently started learning to play the guitar. With that being said I did do my research and probably know a good bit more then the average beginner. These strings are what I bought for my guitar as the ones on it were a bit cheap. They have great well balenced tone. They are easier to press in the light gauges. I recommend (and so does my teacher) that beginners get 11 or 12 gauge. 10 is ok and the easiest to play, but they are a little lighter then you really need and just reduce the vibration and sound. That being said if you are a beginner or you're buying these for a beginner its up to you.

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.

      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.

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

        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.

            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.

                        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.

                                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

                                Not enough depth and clarity. Moderate volume. Maybe I'll try the higher guages to see what happens.
