Always my go to strings

Stevie Ray Vaughn was on to something. Ive always used slinky thin gauged strings on my electrics for their kindness on your fingers, but the thicker hou can go the for TONE will ring out. These were a good balance. Slightly thicker than I’m used to but the guitar rescue project sounds amazing. Hard to solo on but honestly acoustic is more about rythm and cords. I built this guitar to learn Everlong by the FF and it rings out a great satisfying tone. I did a little research before choosing these – good bang for buck can’t go wrong… Just might take a little getting used to… Quit whining rub some dirt on it and get back in the game! : )

I have been playing folk and bluegrass guitar for 60+ years. These are my go-to strings, with nice brightness, not brassy, reasonable string life, and appropriate pricing.
I bought the 11 gauge acoustic set, labeled as a hybrid size. I have been using D’addario for years in acoustic and electric guitars. Next time I’ll just use the normal 12 gauge set. The effect of the hybrid strings caused my acoustic to have a scooped sound. Not terrible, just not my thing.

I’ve been playing about seven years. I use my fingers, thumb and sometimes a pick. These are excellent all around strings for all styles of play and they sound great. I have not had any break in seven years, just wore the sound out of them. That’s pretty good, because I play a bit heavy with my pick. One set of strings in our local music store run about $10-$12 (we are rural) so getting three for this price is exceptional.
Decent sound and consistent quality over the years and priced well.
Nice sounding, clean notes, very satisfied.

I’ve been using these D’Addario Guitar Strings for many years now and have consistently been pleased.Primarily, I play my acoustic at church and around the house so these strings do exactly what I need them to do. I tend to change my strings once a month but they would last much longer than that.I usually buy a set of medium gauge and a set of light gauge for each of my acoustic guitars.For the price and the sound I get out of them, I have no issues with these D’Addario strings.
