Beautiful tone. I started using these because my Martin came with 12-54, and they sound better than the mexican Martin SP+ strings to me. They also last longer than D'Addario EXP and Elixirs. I do prefer the slickness of Elixirs, and haven't tried their phosphor bronze, only 80/20. The D'Addario's sound good but only last slightly longer than uncoated.
I really wanted to like these strings. I just went through re-setting up my action before I put these strings on. The lighter tension that DR puts on my guitar is great in theory. In practice though it makes for a "floppier" string. I couldn't get rid of the buzzing. I switched back to D'Addario strings of the same gauge. I'm sure the DR's are better for my guitar, but I like low action and these just don't work for low action on my set-up.That said, the sound was great when it wasn't buzzing. I would be interested to know if anyone has this problem.
