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.

    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.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2006 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar 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.

          I use the extra light strings on my Baby Taylor and Washburn Rover because they are smaller guitars and these strings are perfect.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2006 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I hadn't played my old Alvarez Acoustic for quite some time, and the 6 yr old Martin Strings sounded horrid. I was going to buy more Martin Strings, but I've always been a fan of Ernie Ball strings for my Gibson SG, and Musicians Friend had these strings on sale, so I decided to try them. I am very pleased so far, at the tonal quality of the strings. Only time will tell how long they stay sounding good.

            Comments about Ernie Ball 2006 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

            I have had these strings on my acoustic guitar for about a month now and I absolutely love how they sound. As it is my guitar has a bright sound so I was worried that these extra light strings would sound too bright but they gave me exactly the sound I have been looking for. My recordings come out so crisp and vibrant with these strings and I'm not sure what kind of coating they have but they are very smooth when transitioning to the next fret or chord. As with anything, string sound and size is a preference and I personally feel that these strings have the perfect tone for my liking and their thinner size makes them ideal for acoustic players who are just learning chords, they especially make bar chords easier to fret. I highly recommend these strings to anyone who likes a brighter sound and a set of strings that won't bruise your finger tips.
