I REALLY like these strings. I am teaching my wife to play, so I wanted to get some strings that wouldn't be too hard on her fingers.
I understand full well that the size of the strings effects the sound (i.e. - thicker strings, slightly better sound)...but these are EASY to play, sound GREAT, and trustworthy to hold tune and light enough to bend for all those delicious lead licks without needing "rock climbing strength" to to get those notes you want!!

The E(10) and B(14) completely slipped out of the tuner peghead as I clipped the excess string. I am not a novice. I have used the same string locking mechanism and ample number of turns for 30+ years and this has never happened to me with any other strings I've used in my career. I was able to jerrymander the now clipped strings through the peg hole and tie a knot / wind with a pair of needle nose pliers but was looking at going into a local store to buy a couple of singles to replace the strings that were now too short to string and lock properly. That's just ridiculous.

    Hey, these strings last long enough for me and my playing habits. Note; I treat them to medium abuse, and not like the hard picking & touring musican would. Therefore, I cannot rate them fot that. They work for me, have them on all my acoustics, and I love the earthy sound.

                  I tend to select a particular string for a particular guitar and use. I find the Earthwood 80/20 to be consistent across a number of guitars. After the first couple of days the squeaky brightness gives way to an even tone that makes overdubs a week later still consistent.

                  The price is not an obstacle to changing as needed and the lights have a decent balance low to high.

                      I'm pretty loyal to Ernie Ball. Got these for my daughter's guitar. She is still learning and building hand strength. She wanted strings that were easier to play like her electric guitar. For extra light these sound a lot better than I expected. I expected them to be twingy and rattle but there is plenty of bass and mid tones. Good for practicing and for smaller acoustics.

                                I typically play electric guitar, so when I move to acoustic, the playing becomes uncomfortable--I am also an older guy. These strings improve my acoustic playing and are not as tiring.

                                        Using on my wife's Epipone Pro-1 Acoustic that has a shorter scale: 24.75 and came with extra light strings. These strings sound good and are easy for anyone to play.

                                          I REALLY like these strings. I am teaching my wife to play, so I wanted to get some strings that wouldn't be too hard on her fingers.
                                          I understand full well that the size of the strings effects the sound (i.e. - thicker strings, slightly better sound)...but these are EASY to play, sound GREAT, and trustworthy to hold tune and light enough to bend for all those delicious lead licks without needing "rock climbing strength" to to get those notes you want!!

                                              I use lighter gauges due to the fact that I've been playing for over 40 years and these are easier to bend and still have a great strumming sound

                                              These strings make playing so much easier.

                                                  These strings do not require as much effort to press. At the same time, they have good sound. It is a great value for beginners or for people who have problems with arthritis as I do.
