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

    Wanted to try and see if I could reduce tension on the neck without sacrificing tone, voice clarity. I was using 80/20 bronze-steell extra light. These sounded terrible right out of the packs, but have steadily improved. It's been a week and they are sweet without the twanginess of the extra lights.

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

      These are nice strings if you are looking for easy to play strings. They give the guitar a warm tone although a bit "muffled", but I think that this is peculiar to all silk and steel strings, not only to Ernie Ball. They do no last long.

              First time with these. I was looking for a bronze silk and steel for a concert sized Breedlove that had become more difficult to play. This makes it easier and the tone in fine. We'll see how they last.

                  Picked up a set at a local store on the recommendation of the clerk. My non-musician wife immediately noticed the improved tone of my Carvin Cobalt mahogany flat-top with these strings

                        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!

                          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.
