These 80/20 bronze strings have a great sound and last just as long as the expensive name brand strings that cost much more. They have a brilliant color, and the windings appear uniform across the length of the string with no gaps or machine errors. After three or four good stretches they stay in tune no problem, and go through the standard life cycle / string phases just like any other guitar string.

Other reviews claim these strings die out quickly, or are dead sounding from the start, or that they leave a black residue on the fingers - none of these have ever happened to me personally, and I have been using these Musician's Gear strings exclusively for both my electrics and my acoustics for over a year now.

Just make sure you wash your hands before playing so you don't gunk them up - Then make sure to wipe them down when finished to maintain maximum lifespan..

The cost / value of these strings just cannot be beat! I hope the quality and price of these strings continues to be offered indefinitely!
They're strings - so not much in the way of features
These strings sound just as good, and last just as long, as name brand strings costing 5x the price!
You cannot beat the price and quality of these strings! At this price you can buy in bulk and change as frequently as you like...

Yeah, I know....these aren't elixirs or Martins but what the heck! I'm a luthier who specializes in repairing old beat up acoustics. So everytime you have to string one up to see how it's playing, and then take the strings off to get back inside. The tensioning and retensioning means they are likely to break soon anyway. For the price these play almost as well as the fancy name brands. Sometimes (cause I'm a cheap son-of-a- I'll even jam and gig with these.

They are bright and full on most acoustics of any size/style. The only real negative is that they lose their tone fairly quickly and need to get changed again. So what for this price!

    Bought 2 packs but wasted one because the high E broke during the first tuning. Luckily the other high E didn't break, for now.

        Well, it's hit and miss, very inconsistent, some strings cannot be tune you just have to change it again.
        Maybe because I think I bought the strings on sale.

              Some reviewers say they sound great while practicing at home but don't use them for shows or recording. If you like them at home why not use them everywhere. They are cheap, not because they are not good. They're cheap because the big name brand company's insist a higher profit margin. These are likely a lost leader for MF; to get people to look at catalogues and web pages. Someone told me they are made at the same factory that makes GHS strings. Maybe so. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THESE STRINGS !!!
