At last! A coated string that gets it right. I like this brand and have been looking for a good coated string - wanted something that lasts a bit longer. Tried them out at a blue-grass festival where my friend picked some up. They are now my go-to since they sound great and no slippery coated feel or flaking. Used them on my Taylor Dreadnought and put the second set on my GS- Mini which I play everyday, it's been a month and so far so good.

I bought these strings to try them out beacuse of the reasonable price. The tone when I first strung these on my Walden GA accoustic was great but after the guitar hung for two days in my humidified studio, the wound strings were all dead. I loosened and retightened the strings and some of the good tone returned but after a day the wound strings were again dead. I have not had good experiences with DR coated strings. I will stick to the coated strings I have been using even though they are pricy.

                    Now that I'm doing more performances I like having quality strings that fit a musician's budget as I grow my following. I do wish the strings came in individual envelopes instead of coils of two.

                        Right after putting the strings on a couple of my guitars I've really liked the feel and playability they give me. Try them out for yourself.

                          I've used many different coated strings and these are the ruffest and squeek the most of any I can memmber. The tone is good though. As far as lasting I just put them on. I own 6 acoustic and use coated strings on them all.
