I don't recommend these strings for gigs with an amplified acoustic guitar. Should be fine for practice at home.
First let me say I am a LOYAL Ernie Ball user - I have used them on my electric guitars for over 35 years. I have tried others and always go back to my Ernie Balls.

One of my bands has me playing more acoustic guitar now than before, and I wanted to try some extra light gauge strings so that (a) I could play leads better and (b) my fingers wouldn't be so torn up after a five hour bar gig. So I tried the Ernie Ball Earthwood extra light acoustic strings on my Fender acoustic, equipped with a nice Fishman internal pickup.

They are wonderful to play, easy on the hands and very bendable. Unfortunately they sound terrible. My band mates yelled at me the first gig, what happened to your guitar? The strings sounded tinny and distorted terribly. No tone, no volume, no projection.

I don't think it is entirely because of the lightness of the gauge. I replaced them with Fender light gauge acoustic strings (11 - 52), barely bigger than the EBs (10 - 50), and the tone is back to what it should be.

I still love Ernie Ball - but these Extra Light Acoustic strings just didn't work for me.
Nice to play but they don't sound good.
Priced right.

        I use these strings on my Gretsch parlor guitar and my Yamaha acoustic electric. They have never sounded better. These strings are easy on the fingers so good for all levels of players.

            These strings sound great on my Taylor when it came time to replace them that's what I went with. I'm a big fan of Ernie Ball Strings.

                  I used these strings on a personal trial basis with multiple D'Addario EJ15 packs in my case. I initially thought, "why are they so loud"? Now I've come to really like the string sound so much that I put another set on the guitar. I've converted.

                  I initially review these strings and this in my long-term, after-using them-for a long-while review.
