I have been playing guitar for 42 years and teaching guitar, general music and theory for 30 years. The guitar has been my love and passio. Guitarists I enjoy are Michael hedges, Will Ackerman,Ewan Dobson,Jimmy Wahlsteen, and of course Kaki King. I like a warm yet brilliant tone in my Martin CXE, Being that it is not a Jumbo, I was delighted with the richness on the low end while it was not muddied up. I was pleasantly surprised. This comes from one Fussy Dude with a critical ear.
Ok, so I have been playing for nearly 50 years. I own a MIJ Sigma Martin DR7, all solid woods dreadnaught, with a bone saddle and nut, ebony pins. I have tried many strings on this guitar looking for that perfect match to the woods and build of this guitar. Today I went to GC to purchase a set of John Pearse 160SL's, based on reading multiple reviews, and the local store did not have them in 11's. After some discussion with one of the employees, I opted to try a set of these strings as the size was what I was looking for. I find 12's a little heavy for my taste, and have been using 10's, but wanted a little more projection, hence the 11's. The change in the sound of my instrument was so immediately the BEST it has ever sounded, that I jumped on here to do this review. If you own a solid spruce top, rosewood sides and back dreadnaught, give these strings a try. If they keep their shimmer and chime for a month or so, I am going to buy the 10 pack. Amazing, balanced, full tone, with just enough brilliance for the highs, and no mud in the bass notes. Excellent, D'addario!
This might be my favorite strings of all times. The brand new string sound could last up to a month!!!Thats why there amazing and don't pop easily.Simply amazed with the tone also its nice and crispy.
