REALLY LIKE THESE STRINGS !!!

You gotta try different picks with these strings.
They respond to pick changes more than any other strings I have tried.

Did the Elixir thing for a while and got tired of the "shed" of the poly's.
Then went to Nano's and I do like them too.
D'Addarios and DR Sunbeams are good too.

Hopefully these will live up to the billing in longevity.

Very "open" sound under the pick.
Good finger picking, not great.

Overall I believe I have found THE string set !!!

Very Happy with these and will DEFINITELY buy more for my Blueridge BR 60.

        Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Medium Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        Like these strings a lot. I have a Martin HD28 that can be kind of dark. I also sweat quite a bit and tend to deaden and corrode strings pretty quickly. These strings really brightened up the guitar in a good way and improved the projection dramatically compared to Martin or D'ad strings. They brightened it without making it harsh, actually improved the overtones as well and the best non-coated strings I've found for handling my alien sweat. Never write reviews, but these are good if you're looking for a little more oomph, sparkle and clarity out of your acoustic.

          Comments about Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Medium Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

          They make my acoustic project more, the power chords are grungy, and the single notes ring clear and bright. Strumming chords is very musical with alot of sustain and harmonic content. Arpeggios are heavenly with bell like harmonics. These strings still sound great weeks after stringing them up. Good stuff all around.

          At first strum it was hate. I hung on for a week and hate turned to like. After a month of playing everyday like turned to a rush. I find these strings are powerful, strong sustain, long lasting, and give a Martin a brightness no other string has in the past 16 years.

                    These strings have made my guitars sound like higher custom guitars. I have an old Takamine F340S and a Taylor 312GC, in both cases people hear the differences in sound. I love these strings! (love strings?) Like so many guitarist, tried all the different strings, in my experience these are the BEST!
