    good strings

    Best service in town! Strings are great on the 712 12 fret

    Great for Dreadnoughts too!

    I have a 2002 610ce. While I wouldn't agree with the "bolder/fuller" description, I will add a new adjective: BALANCED. The volume is balanced across the entire string spectrum, and these strings actually significantly reduced a buzz issue I was having on the treble strings (needs a partial re-fret, but the Elixir HD's might have bought me some time!)

    Highly recommend.

    Nice to my ears

    Tone is subjective but personally I love the way these strings sound. I play a PRS Angelus SE Standard and the balance between the guitar and these strings seems to blend better than other strings I've tried. Other brands sounded dull by comparison. I've always preferred the sound of Elixir strings and this set is no exception. They play easier than a standard set of 13's and I've been able to strum hard with no issues. They are pricey but they last longer so it evens out and I don't have to bother with changing them all the time. I'd say they are worth the money.

    Fantastic stirngs

    Have used numerous brands, all medium gauge,on my Taylor and Martin acoustics and just seem to come back to Elixir for tone and longevity. While the cost may seem expensive next to good strings at a third of the price, Elixir strings last at least four to six times longer. I find these strings better balanced and playable then medium ones even on my GS8, which I thought could never sound as good with a light set. I highly recommend these strings for anyone wanting beautiful tones and harmonics and long life between changes

    Mostly disappointed...

    First, I only use Elixirs on my Taylor and was excited to read about this new flavor stating "Bolder high end, Fuller low end". Not my experience at all. Actually the opposite. Bass is far less than the standard .13
    nanowebs I have been using as is the volume. Now, its not all bad...these strings are easier to play, alot easier. Im using less effort to play and my speed increased immediately. So pretty split on this one, the easy of play does moderately offset the loss of bass/volume. Next string change I'll try the 80/20 HDs and see how they sound...

    Was Expecting More

    When I read about these in Taylor Guitar's Magazine "Wood and Steel" I was eager to try them and see what they could do for my Taylor 414ce acoustic guitar. I realize that guitar strings and sound are very subjective issues and it's a matter of personal perception. I thought that the sound was a bit harsh and very overbearing and distorted intolerably when strummed hard. Yes, there was more volume but overall very displeasing to my ear. Also the increased tension of the 1st and 2nd strings made playing a bit more difficult. After 3 days I switched back to my old brand.
