    Replace Your 12's for Better Playability

    I had Martin SP 12's on my Martin OMCPA4 and the sound was brittle. I knew I had to find strings that were a better match for the Sapele. A friend suggested these and I tried them with a little hesitation because I thought the lighter gauge would buzz and/or weaken projection. I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent woody sound and tonal balance across all 6 strings. Even better, the slightly lighter strings on the Martin Performance Neck yielded a lively playablility that brought the instrument to life. I'm happy with the strings and happier than ever with the Sapele Martin.
    I have always preferred 80/20 Bronze wound over any other alloy or configuration for acoustic guitars.
    Clearly a quality product.
    Great strings at a compettive price.

      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.

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

        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.

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

          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.

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

          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.

                    I've been looking for a replacement for the very expensive coated strings because of the expense. These strings, although they're are not coated actually feel like they are.
                    They have a great tone, are fairly cheap, and they feel very good compared to other non coated strings. I'm sold on Earthwood......I'm going to by them by the dozen.

                      Great strings, could be a little softer on the fingers. But for what they are, great all around!
