They Last Longer!
These strings are awesome. Before, I was using GHS Light Phosphor Bronze. My friend used GHS Light 80/20 Bronze, and they sounded way brighter than my guitar did. So, I read some reviews on Elixir Strings, and decided to try them myself. I went to the store, picked up a pack of these, and slapped them onto my guitar a couple of days later. They sound fantastic! Now let me tell you, I own an old Yamaha. Just a couple of years old. It's very crappy, has the worst pickup ever, and just doesn't sound good at all, especially plugged-in. But from reverting from GHS to these Elixirs, I have fallen in love with a new set of strings. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is because it tends to kind of tear after a while. Not while the strings are still good, but when the strings start to die. I have had them on for almost four months now, and by the third month, I started seeing little hair-like things sticking out from the strings, but I don't think that will effect the sound of the guitar in any way. These strings are especially spectacular for recording. If you're looking for that big brightness, fullness, and enthusiasm, give these strings a try.
