These Earthwoods are the only strings I use. I've tried all kinds of brands before and these get the most bang for the buck. The tone is fantastic. For awhile anyway. Depending on how often you play these strings will need to be changed every 3-5 weeks to keep that nice fresh tone. I don't mind changing strings every month and for the price they are worth it. Other brands may last twice as long but are three times the price. And the new tone of these are just as nice as high end strings. Plus the wide array of gauge to choose from is a plus. I use these on one guitar and the med-light on another. Bottom line: these strings are worth it! Get the value pack! If you absolutely hate changing strings you'd be better off paying the big money for that high end brand everybody talks about.

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2004 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

      I've used these on several of my guitars that "came & went" & they do sound a bit different on different guitars. Overall, they work very well. My only problem is the 3rd. string would break under hard strumming. I blamed this on sharp edges on the tuning key, so I can't really say it was the strings. I've got my money's worth out of every set I've used.

        Good strings for the money, especially if you go for the 6-pack deal. I've had brand new Martins break on me while stringing; no problem with these.

        Comments about Ernie Ball 2004 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

        Yes, there are supposedly better strings out there and certainly much higher priced strings. BUT, at the price for the bundle pack these are equal. IF you want strings that last 3x longer you will pay 3x more, so whats the point ? Plus those 3x longer strings have a coating on them which I do not like. As a regular performer and regular working musician as well as recording, I do not expect strings to last more than a few weeks,I change them very often to maintain consistent tone and action. These strings fit the bill, bright consistent tone set to set. I have been using them for several years now with no issues on Taylor , Guild and Breedlove guitars.

          I've used these off & on for years, depending on what my picking circumstances are, but have found that these are great for any picking use. They hold up very well & blend with anything on stage. ALL strings sound different on different guitars, but these actually work well on any instrument I put them on. Try them, you'll like them!!

            I play at least an hour each day. The last set I put on was about eight weeks ago. The strings are in tune when I pick up the guitar and are still as bright as when I first put them on. After eight weeks they're starting to look corroded, so I am going to change them soon.

              Here's the deal, a six pack bundle pack of these strings cost about twice what a single set of hi priced strings cost. those sets do not last 3 times longer , not if you are paying attention to bright tone. I find these strings have excellent tone when fresh sure, after about 3 or 4 seeks of regular gigging they start to fade, thats over 32 hrs of just gigs, not including practice in between, How long do we want strings to last, just as soon as we start touching them they begin to fade. Some of us have more natural finger oil than others so naturally some of us will get longer life. I string these on a Taylor 414, they are very bright and and consistent from set to set. I have a hi priced set on the Taylor now and I can say from my own judgement I feel they are lacking in brightness. Going back Earthwounds, I generally use 11's...

                You just can't go wrong with these strings. They have a tone and brightness that normally would cost you much more.

                I've never been a fan of Ernie Ball's electric strings, but the Earthwood Lights are my favorite acoustic strings. I've tried 3 dozen different strings - various gauges, brands, and product lines, and these are by far my favorite ones. They play awesome, they're light on the wallet (which is why I didn't have high hopes when I bought my first set), and they seem to last about as long as most other strings I've played.

                I play ska/punk, blues, and some rockabilly and country, and the balanced tone of these these strings works for everything I do.
