These guitar string are phenomenal!

The guitar strings were perfect timing as I needed new guitar strings for my acoustic guitar.

I have had my guitar for three years now and have never changed the strings, until now.

My previous strings were wearing down which left the sound dull and less bright because the bronze on the strings were coming off as a frequent player of the guitar.

The package the string come in has labels on it which guides you to knowing which strings go where and each string has a different color on the bottom so you do not mix them up.

the string application process smooth for the most part, all the strings were easy to install and tune back into standard tuning.

The only string that gave me trouble was the D- String because the string did not want to tighten around the knolo. It took me a couple of tries and eventually worked!

The strings are easy to play and push down while playing different chords. I am extremely happy with both the physical feel and the strings and their sound quality. My guitar sounds vibrant and brighter with these strings!I plan to buy from this brand again!!!!

Good Overall Sound

I've always used D'Addario strings but this was my first time using this style. As advertised, a very balanced mid-range tone. Not twangy or too light. I like the way they feel and and are very comparable to the others I've used. Good quality product.

Quality guitar strings

Restrung my guitar with these strings, they are great quality strings, very durable and they give my guitar not only a nice look with the color but a wonderful balanced acoustic tone as well. Received this item free as a Walmart Spark Reviewer but review is my own and getting the item to try had no bearing on that.

Very smooth guitar strings

To start off I have been playing guitar for years and have never had a set of D'Addario EJ16 Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings, Light, 12-53. I usually go with Ernie Ball super slinkys which are another common light guitar string but wow these strings are really smooth for my acoustic guitar. I was impressed with the packaging and color coordination for determining the EADGBE strings, I thought that was cool how they used colors versus wrapping the strings up individually in paper envelopes. These strings were easy to install as I have installed new strings various times on my guitars over the years. I have them a few days to stretch into proper place and they tune right up with no issues. I love the feeling and sound of these strings on my fingers while playing. They are light and very smooth making a perfect feel and tone for the type of music I play. The strings resonate perfectly on my guitar and provide a crisp clear sound. I now want to get the D'Addario electric guitar strings for my electric guitars because I love these strings so much. I would absolutely recommend these strings to any guitar player, you will be impressed!

Great Strings for Quality and Longevity

I have used other strings but have heard that D'Addario is the benchmark in quality and was excited to try them! I am a relative beginner and appreciated how easy it was to change strings. The color coding of the strings to the keys makes the task of changing strings much easier. I know I don't like to spend time changing strings if I don't have to and they also come well lpackaged in a reusable bag. The strings are easy on the fingertips and provide great tone clarity. They produce a bright well balanced sound and the light guage also provides the correct tension. These Phosphor Bronze EJ16 wound light guaged .012-.053 strings produce warm sound and a bright acoustic tone. These uncoated strings are exceptional and feel smoother than others I have tried. These strings are also corrosion-resistant because of their phosphor bronze winding. After use, they haven't stiffend or dulled and their quality makes me believe I will stick with these strings in the future. I recommend these strings for anyone who wants to produce a good sound when they play while also providing ease of use from changing strings to being easy on the fingertips!

1. Neither. They're bronze. Well, technically they're steel wrapped in bronze.
