    Early Wow!

    Very early but so far I have a big WOW. Makes my lam sides and back recording king ROS16 sound like a ful orchestra! I acknowledge it is still pretty darn early but man, I am thinking about putting them on my Larrivee too!

    A faithful fan of Adamas

    I have used these strings since they came out, on Martin, Ovation, Takamine's, Sada Yairi guitars. Exceptional warm, true tone and harmonics are it's defining features. Pretty long-lasting too. I thought these strings were out of production and have been hoarding them, while trying other brands to replace them. I'm glad they are still around because I prefer to use these strings until I die. And leave some sets behind for my guitars.

    Best for the money!

    I've been playing acoustic guitars, sometimes for a living, since 1948 (!) and these are the very best strings I've ever tried for the money. Phosphor Bronze, and they seem to last forever without losing their tone. They stay in tune quite well on my Recording King RDC 36. I now play mostly Country, Bluegrass and Gospel Grass.

    Discolored and Rusty

    I usually buy 3-4 sets at a time, so I've had these strings for awhile. I noticed the fourth string was a little discolored, The third string was worse and the first string was rusty. I'm also not impressed with the tone. My Takamine sounds real tinny and cheap. I'll give them a week, but I'm sure I'll be changing them.

    Do Not Buy These Strings

    I buy strings in advance of needing them. I bought these and had them for a while, then decided to put them on a Seagull I picked up. The high E and B strings were RUSTY !!! No plastic vacuum pack !!! Would never buy again ! I will stick with Dean Markley Alchemy and Gibson strings.
