I really like Rotosound Jumbobronze phos bronze medium strings but i ordered these by mistake and don’t care for them at all. The winding doesn’t start until about an inch and a half from the ball. There is no winding in the core where the cross the saddle and so your action is theoretically lowered by half the thickness of the winding. Additionally there seems to be less tension on the strings when tuned to standard pitch which significantly impacts the tone.

I suppose these would be ok if you have an instrument of weaker bracing and high action, but did not work well with my 1970 D28.

I found these as a recommendation from John Renbourn's website. I have a Seagull cedar top for my everyday guitar. These strings are piano style and work best on a guitar that has a single piece bridge. The sound is really rich and warm and brings out the harmonic interplay when you let them ring. They do not work as well on my Takamine which is a multi piece bridge but they still sound good. I would highly recommend these strings.
