I have used ClearTone 12's for years on all my high end acoustic guitars. These strings sound as good as Clear Tone's and last a long time. Everyone should wipe down their strings after they are played and they will last a long time.

I'm an amateur but avid guitar player. These strings were suggested by a friend who is a pro and I decided to try them. I've been very pleased with the strings and this is my second time purchasing them. They sound the way I think guitar strings should sound and have very good longevity. I'll continue to try other strings every now and then but based on performance and value these will be my "go to" strings until I find something that can outperform them.

Have been using D'Addario Phoshors for three decades through various different guitars. I have found no string I would rather use on my finger-picking guitar. They started using the enviro-pac long before environmental packaging was popular.

I have tried every string possible on both my guitars and found that the EJ16s are the best for one guitar. Absolutely the best.

Many of my customers prefer these to the regular light gauge strings. I like their long life.

Love these strings! I use them on my Tacoma DR-20 and they ring like a bell! fairly low finger "squeek" and help take the Piezo "quack" sound out and make the guitar sound more natural running into a board or PA system live. Great tone, and they last great! Great value!

"In 1974, D'Addario pioneered the use of phosphor bronze wire for the winding of acoustic guitar strings. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings were an instant and enduring success. A more costly alloy, phosphor bronze was widely known as a durable, long-lasting material used in machine bushings and bearings. After months of searching, a wire company was located that agreed to make sample wires for testing on music strings. The results made history. D'Addario phosphor bronze strings are bright sounding and retain their brilliance longer than other bronze and brass alloys.

Round wound phosphors are available in 6 different gauges for 6 string guitar, 3 gauges for 12 string, and 4 gauges in the Flat Tops series. Flat Tops are round wound phosphor bronze strings that are lightly polished to reduce finger noise and fret wear, and are an excellent choice for noise-fee recording."
