  • Simply the Best Strings in the World

    As reviewed by Alan Lebov on 9/26/2012

    I've been playing acoustic guitar professionally for nearly 30 years and have tried nearly every string out there. Nothing compares to the warmth, sweetness, chime, and ease of play of these strings. Unlike Elixirs which are eardrum piercingly bright when new, these strings sounds broken in right out of the package and are very even from bass to treble. And they last and last. Just wonderful. You must try these!

  • Maybe nice but made my Sigma Martin buzz

    As reviewed by CHRISTOPHER PRESNELL on 12/4/2011

    I had such high hopes for these strings. I wanted to try something other than Elixer Nanoweb Lights and these strings do sound bright which is what I was looking for BUT they also buzz all over the place. Seemed like my Sigma Martin would need a whole different setup for these to work. Seemed to be worse on chords than on single notes. Maybe sympathetic resonance between the strings were making them buzz, I don't know. It made me very dissapointed in my guitar. I had to keep telling myself, it was fine before I changed strings. Perhaps they are just too thin. I've only had them on for an hour and I'm ready to remove them, take the loss and throw them in the garbage. Either that or throw my trusty Sigma Martin in the trash. They would not buzz as much if I played really softly and strenuously manhandled the fretboard at the same time. Pushing down on the fretboard that hard makes the fretted strings go sharp so that's no answer. Maybe if the action on my guitar were to be reset to be a mile high, these might be really nice strings but to put it simply, fudge that!!! Also picked up a set of Ernie Ball 2156 and a set of D'Addarios but they were the wrong kind. The salesman gave me 12 string D'Addarios instead of 6 so they'll have to go back tomorrow. I'll try the Ernie Balls tomorrow (or maybe tonight if I feel like changing the whole set AGAIN). AARRGG!!!
