      Comments about Ernie Ball 2051 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Silk and Steel 12-String Soft Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I used to use Silk and steel strings on my 12 string years ago but for several years, I couldn't find Silk and Steels at my local music store. Now that I I have Silk and Steels like I used to have from Musicians Friend the difference is amazing! I'm never going to use any other strings on my 12. Both the guitar and I apreciate these strings - easier to play and the sound is super!

        Comments about Ernie Ball 2051 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Silk and Steel 12-String Soft Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I tried a set of these Earthwood Silk & Steel strings on my Seagull, and never looked back.

        Although I gave up a little bit of Tone, both on the high end and on the bass, the sound is still strong and sweet. EASY ON THE FINGERS. It's been a year now, I still have the same set on - and they're fine. They hold Tune very well, though - it being a 12-string - I have to tune it just a smidgen after 2 or 3 songs. No fret buzz, and the harder I push it, the better they sound (Rhythm).

        Purchase price was a major factor for me. Anything made by Ernie Ball has always been good to me, and never broke the bank.

              I'm a huge Ernie Ball fan. Always buy there strings for my electric guitars. So I thought maybe it was time to use EB's on my 12 string Takamine. Put them all on and as soon as I started to tighten them they started snapping. Three of my strings snapped before I even attempted to tune the thing. Looks like I'm going back to using Martin strings.

                  I have an old Takamine 12 string that has some neck issues and can't use steel strings anymore. These are much lighter and allow me to back off on the truss rod...I like how they sound although there's not much strength in the bass end...still I'm happy with them.

                  I love "Musicians Friend" This company goes above and beyond Great Customer Service! My items always arrive prompt and well packaged. I will definately buy from this company again, and the ease of purchasing on a secure site through "Pay Pal" gives me piece of mind when doing my shopping from the comforts of my own chair. Thanks MF!

                  Great Strings for my 12

                  By GytrPlyr

                  Comments about Ernie Ball 2051 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Silk and Steel 12-String Soft Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                  I've had a Martin D12X1 for about a year. I love the guitar but needed a string change from the factory originals. I took a chance on these in an attempt to mellow the sound and "soften" the action. Mission accomplished. The sound is great and these strings improved the playability considerably. Very, very satisfied. These are the only strings my Martin will ever know.

                  I've found Ernie Ball Earthwood Silk and Steel strings to be the best strings I've used on my Washburn 12 string. They are light, but durable and give a "honeyed" tone to the music.
