The only other reviewer said they lost their tone in 2 days - really.... These strings come sealed in a plastic cover to keep them fresh and I don't have any problems with them losing tone, at least not any worst than other brands and better than most. Strings seem to last pretty long for me anyway, I have always heard it's about your "hand sweat" and how acidic it is. A friend of mine changes his strings weekly, I can go much longer and these sound great. Those Elixor strings seem to give a muffeled tone to me, kind of like a cheap guitar. The price I got these for was great (they were on sale) but even at this price for a 3 pack is very affordable. Try a pack, I've been playing for 45 years and think they're great.

    Although Martin Strings have been my mainstay for years, I find myself transitioning to D'Adarrio lately. Great, tone, longevity, & performance. No complaints on this end. Recommended...!

    I Keep Coming Back to These

    By AC Phillips

    from New York

    Comments about D'Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

    I just had to write a finally review for these strings. I've played acoustic guitar for 40+ years. I've tried a LOT of strings over the years. Dozens of brands and styles... so many I've lost track. Bottom line I always come back to these D'Addario EJ16s. They sound as good as ANY boutique string I've ever played. They are remarkably consistent - they always sound the same (great tone and ring to them without being thin or too "chimey")- I always know how my guitar will sound with them. They always get in tune quickly and they STAY in tune. They're the ONLY stings I'd put on the day of a gig and trust they won't go crazy out of tune while they get "broken in". And they last just as long as some of the over-priced "long-life" coated strings.

      Comments about D'Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

      I'd prefer these strings over most, because of the tone, the quality and the long lasting life of the strings! This is definitely a must buy 3 pack, instead of buying each pack individually and paying more for it that way!

          Got these strings in a couple days ago, and I got to say I absolutely love the sound of these strings. They have a very nice bright tone to them, and they have a nice bounce to them as well.

          Comments about D'Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

          i took off my old pair cuz i broke the G string but they were beginning to rust anyway, I put these on, and i swear. i will never forget that ring of when I strummed the strings. So clear and just beautiful. They are a little thick for a 'light' string even though they are acoustic strings. But, im using these strings all the time.

          Comments about D'Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Guitar Strings (3-Pack):

          I've been using these strings on my martin 000 for some time but recently tried several other brands including Elixirs but I am done experimenting because nothing comes close to the great sound of these strings.

          I keep various string sets from different manufacturers in my gig kit. But these are the strings I use the most. Love the tone and sustain. My go to Martin MMV sounds so full and rich with these strings. I play about 20 hrs. a week and they last about 3 weeks. They work for me!

          I've been using Martin coated and Elixer. While they do last the sound has always been muted. I tried these and what a difference. Warm, bright and stays in tune. Finally found my strings
