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:

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.

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

              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

                  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.

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

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