  • Great Tone

    As reviewed by AcousticDude on 8/10/2007

    I have used these on my Martin OM for fingerstyle pieces and really like them. I've moved to the Marquis strings since they wrap the ball end in silk and they are very similar. Sounds good with blues as well as regular fingerpicked music.

  • Great for Taylors!

    As reviewed by Mike Harris on 4/25/2010

    Love the feel and playability of Taylor acoustics, but think they are little too bright? These strings are the solution. They have rich full bass, and clean crisp highs without being overly bright like Elixer's are on my Taylor 314CE. Elixers are great, and I used them on all my guitars except the Taylor because they were just too bright for this guitar. Now the brightness has been toned down and the overall sound is fuller and richer than before. It sounds fantastic, and now I am totally satisfied with the sound of this guitar.

  • Great tone

    As reviewed by Caleb Lauth on 9/2/2013

    I loved these strings! They are very balanced in their tone, and are great for fingerstyle and strumming. I would recommend these for any acoustic Zeppelin or Clapton song.
