I've been using these as long as I can remember. I play 320 gigs or more per year and change strings roughly every 4-5 gigs. I live in Florida so humidity and salty air can degrade a string quickly. The tone of these strings coupled with my Takamine P3DC are the best combo for me. For those giving negative reviews, you may want to consider what kind of guitar you are using, under what circumstances and most importantly, your chemistry.

I like a bright guitar, and these were just too dark in tone on my Tacoma JR55 Guild-sized jumbo six strintg with rosewood back and sides. (this all contributes to a dark tone to begin with...). Maybe the light gauge strings would have been a winner, but I was sufficiently unhappy with these that I cut them off within hours, and replaced them with D'Addario EXP 80/20 bronze light gauge strings. I was amazed at the difference, and loved the tone with the EXP's. The trouble is, the D'Addario strings just don't last that long. You get about a month of good tone, and then the bass starts to get muddy. These Ernie Ball strings sounded kind of muddy in the bass, right from the beginning. If you have a bright guitar, maybe they will be a winner for you. Also, for brightness, you might consider buying the light gauge instead of the mediums.

    These Strings went dead after only 4 hours

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2002 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I am so disappointed in these strings I decided needed to tell others of m experience. I play over 100 gigs a year, usually using Martin SP strings. I picked up a few packs of these Medium Earthwound 80/20s on sale. After only FOUR hours the wound strings were dead...hollow sounding with no projection. I had been very humid and I can only think that these interact very poorly to sweat...and if you gig in the summer you are going to sweat. I have never before had this problem with strings and am really shocked and disappointed in these strings.

      They sound good for how long idk because I'm stripping them off I can't even press the strings down and it's got me so aggrevated about even playing. Get elixirs if not them d 'addirio. I hated spending time puttn them on and can't even play the stupid guitar now. So Ima throw away brand new strings because they're too stiff and I suck.

        Comments about Ernie Ball 2002 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        When it came time to choose between these strings and the light gauge Earthwoods, I opted for these because of an irrational fear I have when it comes to tightening light strings. However, these strings made my acoustic sound WAY too dark. It's not necessarily a bad sound, it certainly isn't dead, but it isn't what I wanted. I'm a bit disappointed in that, but some others may prefer the darker tone.

        If you want great sounding strings, buy the 2002 Earthwood strings.
        These strings sound great on my 310ce Taylor.
        Whether unplugged or plugged in they sound great!
        For not having a coating these strings hang around for awhile.
        Great sound at a great price!

        I'm a slammer who breaks alot of strings, I've tried many many different brands, Earthwood are the most durable breakage resistant strings I've found.

        I bought my first set of Earthwood strings at a local music store, and I'm glad I did. They are the best strings I've ever used.
