I bought these on a whim one day and have never gone back....I take that back, once in deperation I grabbed some Martin Silk & Steel thinking they would be just as good. I was wrong. I used to swear by Martin S&S but anything else now sounds tiny and weak in comparison. Thes strings are nice on the fingers, the tone in un-real, and they last much much much longer than any other strings I have tried. GET THESE!!!

I have an amazing 00-45 Vintage, Rosewood Martin. Extraordinary tone. Very crisp, loud, resonant. Aged so better sounding each day. I was intrigued to try these stings, more out of curiosity than necessity and I am very disappointed. Not only are they the most expensive strings I have purchased, they are also the least enjoyable: no tone AT ALL. If I did not have such an undisputed, amazing sounding guitar with the cheapest strings, I would not be upset. So what could possibly be the reason for this. I used light gauge bronze strings. Ready to take them off after one week.

    Comments about Thomastik AC111 Plectrum Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Light:

    Even lower gauged than most ultra light strings but sound amazing compared to 12-53 gauge, strung them on my HD35 to try and keep that deep warm sound but with equal or lower tension than a short scale with 11-52 photos strings. The tension is much lower and the sound much better..... Wow doesn't seem possible. Quieter yes but guitar is so loud it's now better for me and still plenty loud enough compared to my old j45 rosewood that my Martin has replaced. Best of both worlds as my hands play me up if I'm not careful, these strings have allowed me to enjoy that amazing Martin sour and quality with that Gibson playability and I've not compromised the tone... I've improved it.... Very pleased, spent hundreds trying all gauges,types and makes and found the one at last. Only string I'll ever use now

      Comments about Thomastik AC111 Plectrum Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Light:

      I keep buying these because I can't find anything better; after trying brand after brand for 40+ years, these suit better than any other. I'm a finger-style player with an Everett Milano-C; the responsiveness and sustain on these strings is amazing. (I habitually "pick" with my fret hand and the strings make it effortless.)
      They also record beautifully. Pricey? Yup (but they're pretty affordable at Musicians' Friend). They won't last long if you're an aggressive flat-picker, but I'm sure it'll be a gas while it lasts. Love these strings.

        The two tone deaf customers that left these strings bad reviews must work for Elixir cause they're the only two humans on the planet who claim these strings are no good.... Trust me, YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER SOUNDING STRING! Amazing tone, so easy to bend.... plays like BUTTER!

          Comments about Thomastik AC111 Plectrum Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Light:

          If you like the softer, old-school sound of silk & steel strings but would like a little of the edge you get with bronze, these are what you're looking for!

          The silk winding under the bronze wrap gives the bass strings a rounder, mellower sound. Silk-wound strings are excellent for accompanying vocals! They leave a nice space for your voice.

          If you're playing more energetic music with a pick and doing lead-work, these strings may not have the definition you need. But if you're playing fingerstyle or picking gently to accompany your singing. you're going to really like the sound.

          They last a LONG time - they will outlast regular bronze strings by 3 or 4 times, so don't be afraid of the price point. You're probably money ahead over the long run, because they hold onto their tone long after most bronze strings have given it up.

            I've been using TI Plectrum strings for 17 years. I have had then installed on both Taylor and Martin guitars as well as at least on Parker Fly. I like the flatwound strings, no finger squeak, and the overall sound is delicate and refined. I have tried a number of other more 'normal' acoustic strings but I always come back to Plectrums.

                These are pricey but worth every penny. I put them on an archtop and primarily play fingerstyle. These give the tone I was looking for. They sound good without the acoustic amp and plugged in. I will get Medium gauge next time, but definitely the same Plectrums otherwise.

                  Comments about Thomastik AC111 Plectrum Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings - Light:

                  I have been using these strings exclusively for the last 2 years on a custom dreadnought style acoustic guitar. For the style I play, which is more sparse and ambient, on this style of guitar, these strings are unbeatable.

                  The bottom three bass strings in particular have this incredible resonance to them. Hit an open string and let it ring - the overtones are fantastic.

                  I'm not sure if these would be my first choice for a parlor style guitar (smaller body) or something where you want a bright and snappy tone. For deeper, bigger body to the tone, though, these strings are tops.

                  These strings have an awesome, mello sound. As others have reported, the G breaks easily. But they are still worth the money. I wish you could buy a pack of G's.
