All considered, you can't beat these!

When I bought my HD-28E Retro (2011) it of course came with Martin Strings. A good friend of mine had been using medium D'Addario EJ17s for a good number of years through a lot of gigs/performances on his HD-28. He suggested I try them. I used them for a couple of years and then tried some Elixers. The next day I put a set of D'Addarios back on my Martin and that is what I use.
ProsThey are a great price and last long enough to get your money's worth. Great sound out of my HD-28.
ConsCan't think of any.

I like how these sound on my Regal resonator (Bluegrass type, wood body biscuit aluminum single spider cone). Bright and lively.

These are about as good as you can find. Big, robust yet present sound. So far the string life has been great. I do prefer these on guitars that tend to be a bit bright.

Gillian Welch and Nancy Wilson of Heart play EJ17.

 

"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."
