    I have never tried an Ernie Ball string I didn't like, and these might be my favorites for acoustic. Good bright sound and good feel.

    I like them, Ill buy them again

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2150 Extra Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I like these strings. If I want a meatier sound, Ill go to the 2148's. These are a great comprimise between electric sets and acoustic cables. (too big) I have never had a problem with breakage with Slinks. I use them on all my guitars.
    Good sound, still thin enough to bend, thick enough for a decent sound.
    Have not broken one yet.
    Great price.

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2150 Extra Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Thinner strings make playing easier, especially on the higher frets. But, this does come with a sacrifice of some tone. Your individual guitar, however, will affect how much impact these have on your sound. I play my Alvarez very rough, (lots of bending etc.) but not one string has broken in the past four months, though the 3rd and 1st seem to near the end of their ropes. Their sound has not faded either. Overall, if you

    Solid wood to tin can

    By LittleOldLady

    from Pomona, CA

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2150 Extra Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    These other reviews are quite old, but I guess nothing much has changed about these strings over the years.I have a 75 year old solid wood vintage guitar that had always given out a deep throaty tone for it's small size (about 7/8ths of "full size"). I've owned it for 40 years, and my father 25 years before that. The last time I changed the strings, the type I'd always used was unavailable at the store, and the clerk there insisted these Ernie Ball strings were the "right ones" for that guitar. They weren't. My throaty little acoustic now sounds like a tin can. Solid wood guitars (made in a day that laminate was unheard of) are not supposed to sound like this. I didn't have any problem with breakage, like the last two reviewers did, so maybe EB fixed that problem, but they sound just AWFUL, and I've even given them time to "settle" a bit, since new strings are always a bit tinny. To their credit, they "feel" nice, since they're a low gauge on the higher pitches, so I gave them a 3 in "features". However, I need to replace them right away with something more substantial, and Ernie Ball needs to stick to electric guitars, where their expertise is universally applauded. Perhaps they should leave stringing the acoustics to Gibson and Martin.

    Extra Stinky Acoustic

    By zildjian player

    from australia

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2150 Extra Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I have had nothing but bad luck with ernie ball. On both electric and acoustic guitar. They either wear too fast or break. Just recently I purchased these & strung em up only to have the 3rd string break during tuning. I never even got to strum it.

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2150 Extra Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    If they had the same sound as the D'Addario EJ26's, these would be my fav's. I love the .50 (vs .52 on the EJ26), but the sound just isn't QUITE the same.

    Way to breakable

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2150 Extra Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    These strings break way to easily. My 3rd string broke after having them on for only 3 weeks. I didn't even play the night before either!!!
