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!
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.
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!
Great Quality strings!
These strings are great. They sound high quality and it's easy to slide my fingers up and down the fret board ! They are light and easy to break in, I'd recommend if you're looking for light strings, nice clear sound!
I've used these strings before ,they perform well. The sound is clear quality. Easy to string on my acoustic guitar and durabule.
I recommend D`Addario strings for new and not so new guitars.
Good rich quality
These strings have a very nice tone with a full and warm sound. They also tune easily. These are excellent quality with clear tones and I highly recommend them.
Great strings- highly recommended
For new strings, they aren't too bright/tinny sounding. They're settled right in with good tone. They feel great on the fingers too--soft, flexible. Good for beginners or more experienced. They "bend" well without needing any relaxing.
They sound great on my ovation acoustic guitar. Very bright but mellow sound. I am a semi professional musician and I've never been more satisfied with strings. My favorite of all time. Would recommend.
What a lovely sound !
I was so relieved when I finally had help putting on the strings and re-tuning my approximately 40 some year old Gibson Guitar! I used to play each and everyday, and sing as well-but singing NOT so much anymore, cannot reach those high notes-due to not practicing enough! It was the very first gift my husband bought me on our first real date. (we met at a picnic on Memorial day 1975 and married in 1977). I was so exited seeing this guitar, I never received a gift like this. I had to share one with my sister who took off with it. So I bought at the time a mediocre brand guitar-BUT even that one, was so much of a part of my life, throughout high school and college, and beyond...overseas hotel nightclubs! I had taught myself, playing everyday. When I heard my friend who put these D'Addario acoustic guitar strings on, it was an amazing difference. Just a beautiful sound was coming out of my instrument.! Wow that was so so nice, being arthritic I just could not get the strings replaced on my own.I was almost leary anymore to play it, because I had not had a chance in years to replace the strings that I had done periodically. Once you have a family all things fall to the wayside-even though I am well aware how the arts are falling by the wayside. I believe this will make keeping my nails short again so worthwhile. just to play. It buzzes the strings if they are too long! They are really a beautiful quality set of strings. I do believe they sound better than some others I had tried over the years. I would recommend these to anyone who enjoys playing guitar-even when there is no audience anymore!
Good strings - good value.
It's been so long since I restrung my old Alhambra, I wasn't sure I remembered how. These strings plus YouTube made it relatively easy. These strings sound good and look good. Although I received them as a promotion, I looked them up; Walmart is selling these strings for $9.66, which I consider a very good value.
Acoustic Guitar strings, Light
The best guitar strings on the market. Light weight, great sound, durable too...hold up well. Price is fair for the product and use you get. The only kind I use.
Lovely set for an acoustic guitar
Very clear sounding and my go to brand now to replace my old ones. They are good quality materials and really hum when i use them. I have also shared some with my brothers father in law who has played alot longer than me and he to approves
Great look, clean sound
D'Addario EJ16 Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings, Light, 12-53 produce quality sound with a great look. These strings are easy to install and tune with no excessive stretching they stay in tune with no problems.
The shipment came a week sooner than expected. The directions for installing the guitar strings seemed foolproof because they were color coded. The packaging was small and convenient.
Why so impressed?
I have used D'Addario for years and find they always last longer and give a fuller tone than when I have tried other strings (usually because I could not get D'Addario). I have consistently received high quality and long lasting use out of D'Addario and will continue to prefer and use them whenever possible. I highly recommend D'Addario whether for a beginner guitarist or a professional guitarist.
