Good quality strings at a good price.
I am not a fan of D'Addorio, at least not until now. I have the Cordoba Mini O which calls for ball end strings but I wanted to try out these instead since the coating on the strings is important, especially for my guitar it seems. All the other strings I've tried on my guitar have felt rough. These are nice and smooth, just like any Elixir coated strings, which I adore. They're full of tone as well and I'd probably agree with most people who say they have a 'tinnyness' to them. Well, I like that 'tinnyness'. I put Cocobolo bridge pins on my Mini O which helps balance out the string's dynamics, I feel. I would highly recommend these strings to anyone. And oh yeah, they do take a day or two to break in like most people are stating.
