    Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Installed a set of these just after Memorial Day and have purposely neglected them. I haven't cleaned them nor sheltered from summer's humidity. I wanted to see if they were all that EB claimed

    To my surprise and satisfaction, they retained much of that new string jangle for over 2 weeks and then settled into being a great sounding set of strings. Its now mid-August and the strings still sound good and I have no plans to change them.

    EB advertises that these strings "more projection and clarity than traditional bronze strings". These strings deliver on this, bringing more volume and great clarity to the individual notes

    Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I'm am totaly hooked on these strings! I've been playing since the early 70's and have tried a very large number of string brands and types. These have a very balanced musical sound to them. You can hear each note clearly. They typicaly last me over a month and I play a lot everyday. Try them I really think you'll hear the difference.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I put these on my Ovation Balladeer and got the same playability and brighter tone than the Elixer extra lights I was using. They hold tuning well, even in varying temperatures. Don't know about the life, have been playing them less than 2 weeks.

        Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        These aluminum bronze strings have a similar feel as the folk silk and steel style;;but, maintain the clarity and brightness of regular bronze strings.. They facilitate fingering both complex chord structures and single string leads, They allow one to comfortably play and practice for extended periods.

          Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          The new aluminum bronze strings sound surprisingly good on my Gibson J-185 EC Rosewood. They do sound brighter and louder than the D'Addario Phosphor Bronze strings I usually use, but I wouldn't say "better." The new strings succeed in producing a brighter, louder sound without sounding tinny.

                Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

                Always being on the look out for good strings, I tried these. The set was put on a 1996 Takamine EF341. WOW, WOW! First off the balance between highs and lows were like I have never heard. The low and high E strings rang out equally while everything else came through. Acousticly and electrically the strings responded to my playing style of soft and hard strumming. After hard playing of a three hour show, there was very little change in sound and response. These just may be my new go to strings. I also like that the strings are USA made!

                    I've only had these on for a month on my Breedlove D25/SRe acoustic/electric. WOW, what a sound. The sound that these strings put out is amazing, when I play I can hear slight harmonics in the background, if you know what I mean. I am very impressed with them. Really can't say enough. They make want to play more.
                    If your looking for a set of strings that ring, then these are the ones your looking for. AWESOME !!!
