The jury is still out

Comments about D'Addario NB1253 Nickel Bronze Light Acoustic Strings:

I play finger style on a very lightly constructed responsive guitar. Almost classical guitar tonal quality, especially on the base end. I like these strings for their even tonal quality--the "symphony" feels like their playing together. I also like the even full "thump" I get from the lower bass strings. Downside is volume is poor compared to 80/20 bronze wound. Also, live-ness is somewhat muted. Upside to that is I need to be less perfect to avoid crunch from left had. Smooth transitions comes easier. But picking hand wrestles a bit to pull out more sound. The jury is still out..l.

      Comments about D'Addario NB1253 Nickel Bronze Light Acoustic Strings:

      I've been playing guitar for 45 yrs & used every string made (it seems like) but I swear I can't figure out what these strings are good for besides bailing wire. I'd never put em on an acoustic. I figure the nickel/bronze was SUPPOSED to facilitate magnetic pic-ups in acoustics. If so the trade off cancels everything else out. They sound dead right outta the gate. The 10s I used felt more like .11s or even .12s. I hate changing strings TWICE IN ONE DAY.

        I received these strings as a Beta test and really liked the tone. They also last through more shows .
