I honestly have never been wowed by strings. I've been disappointed by strings that were downright horrible like Fatties, but these are unbelievable. A. the packaging smells like maple syrup, B. they are packaged in a sealed plastic, much like a deck of Baseball cards or something like that would come, C. they feel great and sound awesome right away.I rreally think these made a difference and will opt for them nearly every time I can now. I had previously been playing the Musicians Gear brand, because they were cheap and seemed to do the trick.

Was looking for an inexpensive string that would hopefully last a little while. I did like the gauge of string, I usually play light medium gauge, which can be hard to find in a good brand sometimes. Bought three sets because of the good price, put a set on my epiphone acoustic tuned and played. Fingers were black from residue after a few minutes, which is never a good sign for longevity. Usually play 3 to 4 times a week, mostly on weekends, strings were not on for only a week or two with very little play and they were D E A D, dead. No volume to them much at all. Still have 2 sets haven't even put on either one of my guitars, because there is no point. Would not recommend to anyone. You get what you pay for in this case anyway which is, not much of anything. Really like elixirs, but have had alot of trouble with them breaking. Anyway still lokking for that great string at a reasonable price.

Skeptical but Now Confident

Comments about Ernie Ball 2003 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Medium Light Acoustic Strings:

The past few years I have been using ernie ball acoustic regular slinkys and have been somewhat satisfied. Still sounded a bit muddy in my own opinion which led me to try this fine product by ernie ball. Now that I have these strings I will never buy anything else for my acoustic guitar. I have restored my confidence in my playing abilities and so much more. These strings are ideal. Do not hesitate like I did for so long.

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2003 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Medium Light Acoustic Strings:

    Beautiful tone and comfort. I put these on my new Epiphone Masterbilt and it blew me away so I tried them on my old clunky washburn and they made a HUGE difference in its tone as well!

    dull strings

    By Johnny Lee

    from NJ

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2003 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Medium Light Acoustic Strings:

    Would not buy again. Probably go back to D'Addario phospor bronze strings I bought before.
    Tone is dull. Strings seem stiff and don't ring nicely. Strung them on my Taylor dreadnought detuned to Eb. Sounds noticeable duller and weaker than cheaper strings I normally buy.
    At the very least, it seems like these strings have a good lifespan. They don't seem to be getting limp or discoloring as fast as other strings I've had. But due to its dull tone, I will soon replace them.

    Dull with no sound...

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2003 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Medium Light Acoustic Strings:

    I bought these(only one packet thank goodness) from a nearby guitar store. They were dull. All the comments on here are hard to believe. Such lovely comments for such poor strings. They're sound lasted long, but it barely had any sound. They were so irritating. So, I removed them with D' Addrio's. Which happened to sound great. I still can't believe those comments on here.

        I play these on my acoustic, I usually play elixirs but these are alot cheaper and have a better tonal quality overall at least from what I've experienced. Break in time was fair. They respond well to temp and humidity changes. Strongly would recommend to anyone playing acoustically.
