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.

    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.

                      With no amps and no effects, the most important variable for your acoustic's tone and playability is your choice of stings. I have used a slew of various sets and E.B Earthwoods are head and shoulders above the others. The overtones these strings produce sound brilliant as the string vibrates. I prefer cedar top acoustic guitars but my friends play spruce tops. The strings sound great on both. Musicians Friend is great because shipping is free, even on small purchases (such as strings). Do yourself a favor and try a set of Earthwoods on your acoustic. You might be amazed. Happy playing everybody!

                        I used Martin Marquis for years and years, at some point, I noticed that they were going dead very quickly - like after an hour or so of playing. I finally decided to try some different brands, and stumbled across these Earthwoods. They sound good, and they last a hell of a lot longer than anything else I've tried.

                          I have been using these strings since the mid-nineties. I've tried a few others over the years but these are the strings I use if I can get my hands on them. Great tone and life. They sound great acoustic and when I plug in.
