    Comments about SIT Strings P-1048 Phosphor Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I have been using SIT's for 25 years. I sat out to find a string that really does stay in tune.

    I used a Floyd Rose on my Carvin V220, but couldn't keep it in tune and I wondered if it was my strings. I found out about a string company that called theirself 'Stay In Tune'... I had to try them. They DID stay in tune MUCH better than the other major brands and I found the tone to my liking as well, I have been using them ever since.

    I've used other brands over the years, but keep coming back to S.I.T. My local music store doesn't carry them, so I bought my last set from Musician's Friend.

    My styles: Metal, Rock, Classical, (some Easy Listening strumming, picking type stuff.)

    **I like that they are Made In USA
    Also: CANNOT BEAT THE PRICE!

    I hope this review helps...

    Excellent, comes from a luthier-craftsman

    Comments about SIT Strings P-1048 Phosphor Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I'm from Akron, OH, where SIT strings were born and where Virgil Lay began working on guitars and making strings. I get my guitar repaired at his old shop (although V. Lay has since retired and the shop has been passed to one of his former workers).

    I think those details matter--there is a real, physical place that has its good name attached to these products. I use them quite a bit, and I always find them to be superior to anything in the price range. If I had money to blow, I'd play Elixers I guess all the time, but these strings are better than some other brands and will last longer. And they do STAY IN TUNE.
    Great gauge set--I like the gauges of strings they offer in this set a lot.

    As good as two sets of another low priced brands strings--

    I have used SIT strings for many years. The Hooks are the best for a Floyd Rose Trem system! I really love these acoustic sets because they really do stay in tune! I have never knocked them out of tune while playing- which is why I don't like some other brands... and the price can't be beat!

    Great value, STAYS IN TUNE!

    By Anonymous

    Comments about SIT Strings P-1048 Phosphor Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I'm abandoning Elixirs because they're too expensive for me to use. I'm performing a lot, and I burn through strings. Using two capos and alternate tunings, keeping my guitar in tune has become a nightmare.Well, the SIT strings settle really fast, and after several re-tunings de-tunings alternate-tunings, they settle on-pitch! And, they sound good on my guitar. Elixirs are great, and I love 'em, but S.I.T. has me sold. Until I can pick up Elixir packs as cheaply as S.I.T., I'm staying with S.I.T.

    Awesome strings, terrific value

    By DanTan

    from Cary, NC

    Comments about SIT Strings P-1048 Phosphor Extra Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I've been using Elixir strings on my Takamine EG332C for years, and finally decided to look for cheaper strings when I started performing more. I stumbled across these, and the advertised "STAY IN TUNE" appealed to me, since I perform in 3 different tunings.I LOVE these strings! Cheap enough for me to change every gig, and sounds terrific on my Takamine. The bright sound of the strings evens out my Takamine very well, whereas the Elixirs muddled the low-end of my guitar. And, they DO stay-in-tune better than any other string I've tried. Highly recommended.
