The wound strings are wrapped with an alloy combination of 92% copper, & 7.7% zinc wire, and .3% Phosphor providing excellent clarity with rich warm overtones.

The Eagles, John Mayer, and Chris Cornell are just a few of the many musicians who play these Ernie Ball strings both live and in the studio. Made with the finest and freshest raw materials, all Ernie Ball strings are hermetically sealed to ensure your strings stay as fresh as the day they were made.

Excellent strings, depending on your style

Comments about Ernie Ball Coated Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Strings Extra Light:

They have the ease of playing and sound quality I need. Only problem is their short-ish life combined with price. But the first two override this in my opinion.
If you're looking for strings that will allow fast playing and easy bending without sacrificing too much tone, these are by far the way to go. I always get compliments from other players on their sound, and the extra-light thickness allows me to play Hendrix on acoustic. I also play a lot of Bob Dylan and other acoutic-style music, and these sound pretty good for that stuff too.
These guys break more quickly than you'd hope. Maybe after 2-3 months. Of course, I am very rough with my playing, so that could be my fault. And they always sound good to the end.
Very expensive, especially considering the fact that they break after 2-3 months (for me). But still worth it in my opinion if you want the sound.
