Great Strings!

I have used Elixer's on my acoustic for several years. I use D'Addario's on my electrics. I wanted to see how these strings would sound, and Wow! Give them a try! I am ordering 2 more sets as soon as I finish typing this!

pleasantly surprised

recently strung these up and at first i wasnt blown away, and maybe i'm still not, but i like these. they dont feel as stiff as a typical acoustic string. the sound is great for my strummer/picker style then again i dont think anything would sound bad on my Taylor 416ce. i usually use elixirs and while i will likely still use elixirs, i would definitely say these are a nice change. i'm curious to see how long they hold their tone. only reason i gave them a shot is because a local tech had them in stock and i needed something right away. anyways, i think they're worth a shot if you want to try something a little different. a sort of electric/acoustic hybrid.

Ok, so here's my review:I was selected to beta test these string in October of last year and I was super stoked to do so, I strung up my Martin D28 with them and wanted to see how they compared to the Retros that I had been playing up until then. Dang was I disappointed...I feel like the Nickel Bronze strings give you the exact same sound you would get from putting a set of Ernie Ball electric strings with a wound 3rd on your guitar. The strings more or less reap pretty much ever nuance of the tone making the guitar forfeit almost all of its sustain, and giving way to this awful anemic sound. Usually I am used to a string that would bring out the boldness of the guitar i.e. a Phosphor Bronze, or even the new Martin Retro strings, which I've also provided ample solid feedback on," so I thought that these would be similar in bringing out some of the frequencies that other strings might muddy up. Nope.Maybe they're not for everyone! I'm sure these strings would hold their own in a setting where you would plug in as they might pick up more vibrations to your amplification, but I don't see these doing anything else really. Kinda bummed, especially for $12 a pack...
