After much reading about the sound qualities of different kinds of strings, I used bronze or PB's custom lights for a long time. I first tried these strings on my backup/practice guitar - a folk sized Simon and Patrick. The sound was sweet and the strings soft to the touch and easy to play. My main player is a Masterbilt EF500RCCE and it has a rather dark tone. I was afraid to go any lighter than the custom lights (11-52) that I've been using because I was afraid of excessive volume loss. After putting these on, the tone is considerably brighter and better and volume is equal to, if not better, than the custom lights. I play a mixture of finger style and strumming and these strings sound excellent for both. After years of experimenting w/strings my search is over. Don't be put off by the lightness of the gauge - these are easily equal to regular lights in volume IMO. Save your fingers and boost your tone at the same time. Best strings I have EVER used. Excellent!

Too bright for my ear.
I may be a stick-in-the-mud. I tried these strings in an attempt to remove a little of the brightness from my Martin HD28. I wanted a little more pop sound than Blue Grass. I got 60's 12 string sound instead. I just put them on today. I will remove them tomorrow. Some will love them. I am still searching for MY String! The Silk and Phosphor are not it! It may be the lighter guage.
Martin Quality.
Value priced.

    usualy play extra light strings on my acoustic due to poor hand strength and stamina, but these SJ flexible core are easy to play and have great tone and volume. Try them!

              Thes are great for finger pickers and if you use amplification they will sound even better .I would buy them at the regular price , but at the price I paid I would buy more than one set. These I will use for a long long time .

              When I first bought these strings, I figured they were good as any. After using them a while, I think they're great strings! Flexible for bends and very easy on my old arthritic hands and fingers. I have since ordered 10 sets to make sure I have plenty on hand. It never fails, when I find something I like, it gets discontinued lol. I'm putting these on my three favorite guitars...

                  I have poor finger strength so I usually use extra light gauge strings. These Flexible Core SP strings are easy to play, comfortable, resonant and bright. Highly recommend them for all players

                    These strings have crisp tone and are very comfortable to play. They ring nicely for recording acoustic rhythm tracks, but they're also articulate for flat picking solos.
                    They are better than many others.
