      Comments about D'Addario EJ41 12-String Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I play in a small church ban. Decided to tune my Takamine Jumbo 12 up to concert pitch to simplify playing w/ other guitarist, so thought I'd try these extra-lights. Much easier on the left-hand, especially in first-position. Good for finger-picking, but also handle flat-picking and moderate strumming as well. Nice clean sound, great highs, but the jumbo body still pulls out nice full sound from the low strings - still get that nice bottom in drop-D, for ex. Last pretty well even with daily playing - though I would never go 10 months like someone here claims! 2 months is about what I usually do - but, I like that nice clean "new string" sound.

            Comments about D'Addario EJ41 12-String Phosphor Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            Strings are very personal. They should fit technique whether on a shredder's electric or a booming dreadnaught. I'm a very light fingerpicker. As noted by others, these are lighter than most 12-string sets. Basically they're the gauges I use on my fingerpicking six-strings, flattop, archtop electric or semi-hollows.

            Any 12-string set will also bring somewhat different left hand technique. At standard pitch or my preferred "down a full tone" to D, these not only finger well, but they allow much more left hand work than heavier strings.

            They're not, however, at all a good match for the heavier flatpick strumming player. With a decently low action and beating up the strings, they'll buzz far more easily. Don't beat on these; caress them as though on a nylon-string classical guitar playing a bit of Bach - even if it's Stack-o-Lee.

                I have a 1968 guild F112. Magic guitar. The master luthier who set it up in 1970 said "don't use any other strings". La Bella light guage silk and steel. A match made in heaven. However, being hard to find and expensive and only last 2-3 weeks max, I finally started to look (after 40 years) for new strings. Tried them all. No luck until now. Who would have thought .009 works! The D'Addario EJ41's have the balanced tone of phosphor bronze, shimmering highs, and playability I need. Very responsive. Not for the heavy strummer on a big box 12, but if you are an articulate player and want overtones like a harpsichord, try these.

                    These strings have great tone on my Ibanez 12 string that is run through a Zoom A2 guitar processor! My last set lasted almost 10 months of gigging at least twice a week. Nice price, last a long time!

                        Smaller E string helps playability and gives the sound I like. Just had my Luthier install a K&K pickup,bone on the nut and saddle,and dress the fretts.My Ovation has always sounded good;now it's even better.I feel the strings make a huge difference especially when I play through the amps and pedals. Almost Angelic! Gotta try em!

                        Many people would never think of putting a set of 9s on a 12 string, but even on an inexpensive Rogue they really sing. I played the strings that came on the guitar, tried these 9s, tried a set of 12s tuned down, and wound up back with these strings. They are easy to play, even when tuned to concert pitch, and unlike heavy strings leave enough room to be fingerpicked.One word of caution -- D'Addario does not name their strings like others, and their gauges, overall, tend to be a bit lighter. Most extra lights from other manufacturers are heavier (10s).
