The only other reviewer said they lost their tone in 2 days - really.... These strings come sealed in a plastic cover to keep them fresh and I don't have any problems with them losing tone, at least not any worst than other brands and better than most. Strings seem to last pretty long for me anyway, I have always heard it's about your "hand sweat" and how acidic it is. A friend of mine changes his strings weekly, I can go much longer and these sound great. Those Elixor strings seem to give a muffeled tone to me, kind of like a cheap guitar. The price I got these for was great (they were on sale) but even at this price for a 3 pack is very affordable. Try a pack, I've been playing for 45 years and think they're great.

    Although Martin Strings have been my mainstay for years, I find myself transitioning to D'Adarrio lately. Great, tone, longevity, & performance. No complaints on this end. Recommended...!

    I Keep Coming Back to These

    By AC Phillips

    from New York

    Comments about D'Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

    I just had to write a finally review for these strings. I've played acoustic guitar for 40+ years. I've tried a LOT of strings over the years. Dozens of brands and styles... so many I've lost track. Bottom line I always come back to these D'Addario EJ16s. They sound as good as ANY boutique string I've ever played. They are remarkably consistent - they always sound the same (great tone and ring to them without being thin or too "chimey")- I always know how my guitar will sound with them. They always get in tune quickly and they STAY in tune. They're the ONLY stings I'd put on the day of a gig and trust they won't go crazy out of tune while they get "broken in". And they last just as long as some of the over-priced "long-life" coated strings.

        Got these strings in a couple days ago, and I got to say I absolutely love the sound of these strings. They have a very nice bright tone to them, and they have a nice bounce to them as well.

        First impression: I love them and sticking with them.

        Comments about D'Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

        i took off my old pair cuz i broke the G string but they were beginning to rust anyway, I put these on, and i swear. i will never forget that ring of when I strummed the strings. So clear and just beautiful. They are a little thick for a 'light' string even though they are acoustic strings. But, im using these strings all the time.

                I just replaced the old strings on my Larrivee P-105 parlor Guitar, and it sounds so much better, like a different guitar. They have a great feel, almost like a medium gauge. They also break in quicker. They only need a few tunings when new and then they hold their tune and tone. My new favorite strings for sure.

                  I've been using these strings on my martin 000 for some time but recently tried several other brands including Elixirs but I am done experimenting because nothing comes close to the great sound of these strings.
