D'Addario Nickel Bronze Review
The new D'Addario Nickel Bronze strings are fantastic! I embarked on a year long journey to find the perfect strings for my various acoustic guitars with the goal of getting rid of "coated strings". I finally settled on D'Addario EJ16. I am willing to change my strings more often to get a better, more even, tuned sound. However, these new Nickel Bronze simply blow away the EJ16's! They are brighter, louder and far more articulate. If you play fingerstyle and especially if you tend to play softly, these are the best strings on the market. I now have them on my Collings OM1, Martin D-35 and three different hand made guitars built by different luthiers.

I put on a beta set on my dreadnaught Taylor 810. I normally use the D'Addario EXP16 set on this guitar with the NY steels on the E and B strings. I noticed immediately that these strings don't lock into tuning as readily as the EXP 16 set and are noticeably brighter. These strings would be good if you're playing in a large band and want to cut through the mix. These would also be good for studio use. I must say, however, that I miss the overtones of the EXP16 set and the tuning stability.
