Strings are such a personal adventure, I wonder how valuable comments are. When I started playing guitar, I bought a different brand and thickness of strings every time I changed strings on my guitar. This gave me the opportunity to discover what I liked and what I did not like. I prefer medium strings because I feel they provide the perfect balance between the highs and the lows (tones). Light gauge strings are too high and tinny ( if that's a word ) sounding to me. Heavy strings are harder to fret. So I recommend that you find out your style of playing when deciding on which gauge to use. If you break strings, use heavier strings, if you have a problem fretting, use lighter strings. I prefer uncoated strings over coated, because I hear a muffled sound when playing coated strings (some say I'm lying about that). Your fingers slide over the strings easier with coated strings and if the acids in your fingers corrode your strings, perhaps coated is for you. These strings have good strength and tone for my style of playing, and they are priced affordably. The bottom line is, buy different strings and test them out, then decide what your go to string set is.

I've played D'Addario's since 1981 and have always been pleased, however lately, not so much. Previously playing light rock, folk, and finger style, they've always been reliable, but now having ventured into bluegrass with a much more aggressive attack, they will last for one 3 hour gig. More than that and they're dead and they'll break. Sometimes at the saddle, sometimes at the fret, other times at the tuner post if changing pitch too much. I will continue to use them until I find a suitable replacement because I don't want to fuss with the guitar's setup right now.

D'Addario EJ17 medium gauge phosphor bronze acoustic strings

By David Jordan

Comments about D'Addario EJ17 Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Strings (3-Pack):

The medium acoustic strings add more volume and enhanced tone to my acoustic guitar. They are consistent from package to package, and from years of playing them have only had two instances of the high e string breaking at the ball end during initial tuning.
Like the package says, warm, bright and balanced tone. The medium gauge definitely add an acoustic boost to my guitar, although they are just a bit more difficult to finger, and do cause my acoutic to "belly" below the bridge after prolonged use, so I switch back to "lights" occasionally.
I've found D'Addario strings to be consistent in tone, quality package after package.
Good bang for the buck.

          Comments about D'Addario EJ17 Phosphor Bronze Medium Acoustic Strings (3-Pack):

          I was always looking for sustain and felt that EJ17's were too warm as they say. I play these on a Martin HD28V and practice miked vocal and guitar through an amp using a small hand recorder. When I finally tried the EJ17's the sound quality was fat, harmonic and very impressive especially while finger picking with bare fingers.

                  I've used the D'Addario EJ17 strings for many years, and have always liked their tone, crispness and endurance. I play them a little bit hard, and they last longer than I would have expected. That is why I continue to use them. Musician's Friend in my normal source for strings, as their prices are tough to beat!

                                  I use these strings on an Ovation and Taylor. The beautiful sound of the guitars, which are completely different from one another, are enhanced by the strings.

                                    I use them with my Taylor and am very pleased with the tone they give. I play for my church worship team and have had good feedback from other musicians with how it sounds better now.

                                      Great strings for my Taylor Big Baby. I play in an acoustic duo band and we both use these strings. I always change strings before a week/weekend of gigs. That is my choice not the strings.

                                        I perform in a Bluegrass and a Celtic band with practices between performances. These strings hold tone and sustain greatly ! Their longevity is better than any I have used previously.
