    Great Strings

    By Michael Chu

    from Riverside, CA

    Comments about D'Addario EJ40 Silk and Steel Ball End Acoustic Folk Guitar Strings:

    I ordered a set of these strings for my smaller body acoustic (approx. OO size). The factory strings were a bit too bright for my tastes, which the smaller body enhanced even more. So I looked to get some strings that might give me a smoother, mellower sound. These strings did the trick. Upon first stringing them up, it definitely adds a bit more warmness to the low end of the sound spectrum. Makes the smaller body guitar give a fuller sound. The price is not too bad too.

    Love Them

    Comments about D'Addario EJ40 Silk and Steel Ball End Acoustic Folk Guitar Strings:

    I agree with other reviewers. I have a small body Yami and I love the sound of these strings on it! Fuller sound with more vibrant character. Inspires enthusiasm during our praise and worship times at church.

      Don't waste your money!

      By John

      from Dowagiac, Michigan:

      Comments about D'Addario EJ40 Silk and Steel Ball End Acoustic Folk Guitar Strings:

      I bought these strings for my acoustic and I played them for a week straight and the action is terriable. They always stayed stiff no give at all and it made it miserable to play. I also found that they break very easily when playing chords and complicated riffs. Overall i would not waste my money on these again.

      Comments about D'Addario EJ40 Silk and Steel Ball End Acoustic Folk Guitar Strings:

      I just started trying new strings on my Mitchell MD 100 acoustic. I had Ernie Ball Earthwood extra light before. I liked the EB but it sounded tinny to me. So I tried a set of D'Addario Phosphor Bronze. On my other guitar, there was a noticeable change. But very little on the Mitchell. So I tried these. What an incredible change! I now have what I feel is the warm, full sound that I was looking for. They are very soft strings and I broke the 1st string in my 1st set. What a bummer. We will see how long they last.
