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

      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.

      Excellent Depth and Overtones

        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.

        ignore bad reviews. they're awesome

        By david lambert

        from Florida

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

        these strings sound great, they're not tinny, and they're low tension so you can finger pick them as easy as you would nylon strings. IF you're G string does die out whenever for whatever reason, buy a different G string. Any real musician knows you can buy strings seperate if you don't like one or two strings in a set. that's why there are "custom gagues" and "sets"

        If you want the best....

        By Swing_Lowe84

        from Louisville

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

        I don't know how these work on other guitar types, but on solid wood, acoustic archtops (big bucks guitars usually) these are IT. Best balance I've ever heard, and they give you that slack-sounding jangle-rattle-1920s jazz sound that we crave, those archtop players among us, I mean. Pricey, yep, and they *sometimes* go dead a bit fast. I think the key here is that if you play your guitar a lot, you'll get more than your money's worth from these strings. However, they go dead whether you're playing it or not. So, if it's under the bed 95% of the time, you'll get very little play time from these. You might say these are strings for people who PLAY their guitars regularly, daily even. I do, and notice little lifespan difference between these and any others. (Coated strings excepted, that is.)
        2 brass-coated plain steel strings (B and E)
        1 round-wound bronze string (G)
        2 half-wound bronze strings (D and A)
        1 round-wound biggie string (low E)

        How can you go wrong with a set like that? Ha! It's awesome, blended to perfection in Vienna, Italy. And LOW-TENSION on top of it all. No more guitar-fight. Loud like a steel string, plays easy almost like a nylon. The sound is definitely steel, however.

        Great Strings!

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

        Great strings. I play swing guitar and jazz and these allow me to play these chords easily and they feel good and sound great. I've tried lots of others and these are the best for my Collings SJ.

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

        Same problem as other rewiewer. G string went dead in less than an hour of playing. Get two sets of D'Addario EXP26 for same price. These strings come highly touted but in 40+ years of playing, I've never had worse strings. Can't say enough bad about them.

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

        Purchased 2 sets. Strings sounded pretty good the first day, Then G string went dead by the next day. Thinking I jist got a bad set I put the second set on, and same thing. Would never buy again.

        Best Strings Ever

        By AndyCorbett

        from Whitinsville, MA

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

        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!!!
