I've been playing my Taylor 314-LTD for about 14 years now and have tried Cleartone, Elixir, Martin, John Pearse, GHS...you name it. I finally decided to try D'Addario EJ26s, and I absolutely fell in love with my guitar all over again. I've been using them for about 5 years now and have never had an issue. Whenever I throw a new set on she sounds like a symphony again. Whether it's Fingerstyle, Rock and Roll, Blues or Folk, these strings are the stuff.

I have been a hard-core 80/20, .012 gauge guy for years. On a lark, I decided to try a lighter gauge phosphor bronze set on my rosewood dread. My only regret is the fact I didn't try it sooner. I am amazed at the balanced, bright tone these strings offer and haven't noticed any tonal/volume loss with the lighter gauge.

Incredible strings at an incredible price!

I've been playing for 30 years now. I've tried a lot of different strings. These strings are hands down, the best acoustic strings I've ever played.

The D'Addario's are well balanced and beautiful on my steel string, and have a nice ringing top end.

"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."
