Excellant tone with these strings!
I have been using Martin Strings forever but decided to give these a try. I have a Seagull S-6 with a cedar top which gives it an articulate woody tone. These strings tend to enhance both the articulate notes and woody tone of this Acoustic and makes a good sounding guitar sound better. Also impressed with the tuning stability and increased span of time before I need to change strings.

I put a set of NB1252BT's on my new Taylor 812 CE DLX 12 Fret. What I wanted was slightly less tension than the Elixir 13-53's that were initially designated for the 24.9 inch 12 fret Taylor. So here are my initial impressions. - A very small decrease in loudness. - A very small decrease in tension. - The tone of the wound strings seems fuller in fundamental frequency. Now, after over a month of playing 1 to 4 hours a day, and two long gigs, they don't seem to have changed; the sparkle/sustain is still there. They stay in tune, and best of all, are responsive to dynamic demands of both hands, more woody with pressure. I play without a pick. I was hoping for perhaps a little bit more tension relief, but all other attributes were not disappointing.
