        I bought these for my son's Ibanez acoustic ... to improve playability with less tension. The 11's fixed the issue. They have a smooth feel and good mellow tone. The bass strings are nylon wrapped in zinc and fret easy. He digs them, and we plan on re-stringing with another set when it's time.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2045 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Silk and Steel Soft Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I picked up an Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500R last year as I was starting to do a lot more finger picking. For 15 years I had been a straight strummer and always had dreadnaughts. Since I got the Epi (which is an OM size) I was struggling to settle on the right strings. I use nothing but D'Addario EXP's on my other guitars. I just couldn't get the sound and more importantly the feel I wanted for my playing style, which is mainly bare finger travis picking. I stumbled on these strings and gave them a try. My search is over... These strings are so subtle and have such great tone. They give you the soft feel of silk & steel while still giving you the definition of 80/20 bronze. I can't speak to longevity yet, I doubt they will last as long as the D'Addario EXP's, but I am more than willing to make that trade because of the sound and feel. Kudos to Ernie Ball for making some great strings!

          Last long feels great

          By 

          from Ontario, CA

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2045 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Silk and Steel Soft Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I put these strings on my friends ibanez jampack acoustic guitar. One of those value package guitars worth less than $200, strung it there so it would be easier on his fingers since he is just learning, and since the strings are soft. I ended up changing my acoustics with these strings. Great sound and feel. Makes budget guitars sound expensive.

          Really soft strings

          By 

          from Vernal, Utah

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2045 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Silk and Steel Soft Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I just stringed my big baby taylor with these and this strings are soft and feels silky it makes your fingers glide in the fretboard. The sound is not boomy nor tinny, it's kinda in the midrange, but it still brings out adequate and beautiful tones. This are good strings, I highly recommend it.

          Ernie Ball Silk & Steel Soft 2045

          By 

          from Minnesota

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2045 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Silk and Steel Soft Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          I just strung my guitar with Ernie Ball Silk & Steel Soft 2045's (11-52 gauge). These are great! I previously had my guitar strung with DR 12's. These are so much easier on the hands, the tone is marvelous. These are the strings I'll be using on all my acoustics from now on. Thanks for a great product!
