D'Addario Flat Tops folk guitar strings

By David Powell

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about D'Addario EFT16 Flat Top PB Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

Tonally, I find no big difference from the phosphor bronze strings. The Flat Tops are much more comfortable to both my left and right hand. Friction noise is reduced quite a bit with my finger-style approach.

    Comments about D'Addario EFT16 Flat Top PB Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    I play an all mahogany Martin with a satin finish 000- 15 M. It is very sensitive and responsive which is what I wanted, plus I like the look. String noise was a huge problem. I worked on my technique and used a lubricant string spray , but still not satisfied. I liked the mellow sound of silk and steel , but still was getting more string noise than I wanted. The flat tops fixed my problem. almost no string noise at all. They are mellower in tone than regular phosphor bronze, but I prefer that. Daddario mentions that on their string package.

    Comments about D'Addario EFT16 Flat Top PB Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Good feel! Less noise when sliding your fingers on the strings. Some strings sound better but have more noise but these strings sound good with my amp sound set up. It's all in what you like but for me I like these strings enough to buy them.

    Minimal string squeak when sliding into notes, but...

    By Robert

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about D'Addario EFT16 Flat Top PB Light Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    As other reviewers have noted, these strings work as claimed in terms of minimizing string squeak, but produce a rather unappealing, nasal and pinched tone on my mahogany/cedar acoustic. I bought them for recording a fingerstyle tune with lots of fast sliding up and down the neck, but ended up making the recording with more conventional, coated strings, taking extra care to lift fingers to avoid squeaks when possible, because I didn't like the tone quality with the Flat Tops.
