I've been playing since I was 12, and this is the first string I've been totally satisfied with. Weather I'm wailing on my old beater around the campfire or just playing my grandfather's vintage hummingbird quietly, these strings hold their tone, and produce the same great, warm, vibrant sound for months. I've yet to break one, and my friends have all switched over to masterbuilt. I can even switch to DADDAD tuning on the spot without changing strings and they don't lose tone or snap when I tune back, like all the others I have tried. Perhaps professionals may not find them bright enough, but I like the mellow tone and the vocal compatibilty. And, though its not the most important, the low price is a huge bonus.

I put these on my Blueridge Adirondack 000. They sounded awful from the start, and got worse as they broke in. I'll describe the sonic properties as sproingy, twangy, brittle, and thin. They sound like a set of Ernie Ball super slinkys, and that is no compliment. They also go out of tune very easily and seem to have major intonation problems, even when fully broken in. My guitar never had these issues until I put these strings on.

Maybe they're better fit for Gibsons. I could not believe a set of strings could ruin the sound and feel of a guitar so effectively.

        I have used every brand of strings under the sun in 45 years of playing. These strings came on my Gibson Dove and I wouldn't think of using anything else. I tried and hated several other brands. However, I am spoiled and change strings every 2 or 3 months regardless of wear and tear.

                These strings play very well, however the wound strings are a bit loud if you drag your fingers as you play.

                    I use Gibson strings for all my guitars, acoustic and electric. They stay in tune well and I've never had any strings break and I've been using these strings for a little while now. I would highly recommend these strings whether you're an experienced player or not. Man I love these strings!!

                            I have been tried many different types and brands of strings and have finally found "the ones." These keep their tone, crispness, and clarity. Have not broken one yet. I use them on all of my guitars, which include a Guild D-55, Ovation CC44, and a Jackson/Charvel 625C. These strings bring out the best sound in each of them.

                            Bought a Hummingbird with these strings on it and I love 'em. Nearly a year later, they still have life and hold a tune. I can stop looking for a better string. Highly recommended.
