    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.

      Ernie Ball... You Failed Me

          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.

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

              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

              from South Georgia

              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.

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

              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.
