Sometimes you get what you play for, though. Put these on a limited edition Breedlove concert size with myrtle back and sides. At first, they sounded really powerful -- almost TOO much power. But when I heard the guitar from the front, the delicate balance and depth of the guitar was still there. Just really present and organic sounding.
After a few days, they tamed down just a bit, and this guitar has never sounded better, IMHO. Have tried a number of phosphor bronze and 80-20 Bronze sets on the guitar.
I will see how long they hang onto their edge. If they last another week, I can kind of cost justify the thing. If not, maybe I slap on a set before recording or playing for people. AMAZING strings. Not happy with myself though. Will probably hold off trying these on my other main acoustic so I don't feel compelled to move that one off the Sunbeams. Lord help me and my corksniffer tastes.
The second set I put on my Martin J-16GT, and on that guitar they sounded lovely, deep lows, clear mids., and bright highs, with long sustain, and long life. I'll keep using them on this guitar. Fabulous sound!
You need to experiment to find out which strings best suit your guitar, and your ear.
