      Comments about SIT Strings GB1252 Golden Bronze 80/20 Light Strings:

      1st off, Musicians Friend has GREAT costumer service. Might be the best in the music retail biz. Thank you MF for doign the right thing. I am a full-time working musician that bought these strings as a fill in. I play so much and I'm so rough on guitar strings that they last a gig and then i have to change them. That's a fact. I did buy these on special from MF because i had used SIT strings before (they used to string them on G&L guitars awhile back) and i liked them. The price was right on a 1/2 dozen sets so i bought em. Wrong move! These strings were VERY OLD STOCK. The plain strings were turning black from oxidation, sometimes they wouldn't tune and they certainly went dead way before the gig ended. Now, I couldn't tell you if a fresh set of the SIT strings would have made a difference, but I'll never know because i will never buy SIT again. Whomever MF was buying these strings on closeout from should really be ashamed of themselves for selling very old stock. MF completely did the right thing by me, but they were selling a completely inferior product on an unsuspecting public. I know it's only gtr strings and not the end of the world, but it's still a PITA.

      bought these at the local music shop for a lincoln and a washington to put on a dreadnaught acoustic i got the medium GB-1356 .013-.056 wound G set high E would not stay in tune i have never had a problem with other string on this guitar ended up breaking the E and B strings after a day of use broke at the tuning peg on both strings they were not binding i have a tusq nut and saddle i also noticed that the winding on the bridge/ball end was of very poor quality i could do a better winding job in the dark with my fingers also they have begun to tarnish after a few hours of use i mean come on really i know they are inexpensive but really one day!! they do sound great but just dont hold up in my opinion the wound strings on the other hand seem to be of better quality next time ill be buyin D'addarios like i should have done in the first place but the man behind the counter recomended these i think he was just trying to clear them from the shelf id be willing to bet that next month he will not have any LAYS SIT stings for sale

      Great buy for the budget

      Comments about SIT Strings GB1252 Golden Bronze 80/20 Light Strings:

      Very pleased with these strings. Price, tone, and longevity do it for me.
      It's not like they are coated or anything special but they do sound good.
      I really don't have a lot to compare these two. I've basically only tried about 6 or 7 different brands of strings myself, so keep that in mind. But, I've tried Cleartone $16 coated strings and some other expensive ones and like these almost as good at first but like them better in the long run. They have a good warm tone and stay in tune after months of daily use.

      I had started using the Musician's Friend strings because I thought they sounded really good for the price. But they need to be changed almost monthly and they don't sound near as good as these do.
      The only way you can beat the price of thes is buying the Musician's Friend strings for a couple of bucks. These are only a dollar more right now. Can't complain about that at all.
