      Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I bought two sets of medium gauge aluminum to try and compare to my current preferred strings. I normally use Martin SP phosphor bronze 13s which have more phosphor content than any other 92/8 as apposed to the normal 80/20 phosphor content. The Martin SP are wonderful strings and have a unique tone superior to other phosphor bronze. I've had these strings on for several months and the sound is still great. They have a clearer tone clarity over the phosphor bronze strings and seem to resist corrosion more than what I have been using though I haven't played outside with them as I used to do a lot, but still they are sounding great. The only drawback is a little less volume, not much less but a slight noticeable difference. I did play a lot on the street busking where acoustic volume is everything, but the clarity difference I feel is worth the slightly less volume. They are still decently loud enough to be heard competing against background noise and other instruments. I have about 8 packs of the Martin strings I will still use but these will be my new favorites. I strung my Martin D-15 and my HD-28V with these and did compare the sound difference as best I could. These are more expensive but I think for the time they last are comparable with coated strings as aluminum doesn't corrode as fast as a bronze makeup. I have also used D'Addario coated 13s and still these are better. My complaint on the Addario coated I bought a 2 pack and I think they were mistakenly wrong gauge in the package. Upon putting them on, I had to drastically adjust my neck truss rod to stop them from buzzing. I notified MF about the mishap, they referred me to the Addario company which gladly replaced both sets, the set I used and I did have to send them the unused set. They were nice about it but it would have been an issue had I not had a few sets of my regular or I would have been in trouble. Anyway, there you have it, my opinion. Hope it helps. By the way, these have same tension strength.

        Put them on today when I've got them, they sound broken in right put of the package. They have a deep base that is only rivaled by the fantastic treble. They are the perfect strings for me and my style of playing.

            I have used Ernie Ball phosphor bronze strings for a long time and always liked them.I bought a set of the aluminum bronze strings to try out a few months ago and really like these even better.They sound full and balanced.They sound like they are broke in right out of the package.The bass sound is better and the treble sound is still there.They hold there tone really well after being played a lot.

              These strings have a clean well balanced tone. I'm not so sure that they are anymore powerful than the D'Addario strings that I was using before.In fact they may not be as loud. I'm not sure. I do like their tone, and I think I'll continue to use them.

                Immediately impressed with the quality of tone produced on all my owned acoustic guitars. Plus these are a fantastic value over coated strings.

                  I could not tell the difference by the feel of them. they look a bit like aged phosphor bronze, but they sound as promised. Crisp highs, wicked mids, and thundering lows. as for the advertised longevity,(heh)time will tell.
