"Best acoustic strings on the planet so far."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
These sound and feel amazingly good! I've used elixir nanowebs for awhile now, and these are even better. 90% of the durability of regular nanowebs plus they sound richer and more organic which is great. And they do last WAY longer than any other brand, I've tried all of them. Now I just wish they would make these for 12-string and baritone too.
very consistent, extremely long lasting tone. Eventually you do notice the outer coating breaking up in the picking area, which sounds like it would be awful, but I'm pretty picky as far as tone and feel and it's never bothered me in the least - only visually noticeable if you look very close. By the time it's gotten really broken up you need to replace the strings anyway (usually after 2 or even 3 weeks of daily playing.)
It doesn't feel great to pay almost triple the cost of some strings, but they do last 3 times as long, and you save 2 string changes so it's worth it for me.
The Wow Factor:
ooo...pretty purple...uh, whatever. Well the strings themselves do have a nicer more natural look than the gold regular nanowebs and polywebs. They're more of a bronzy color so I guess they look nice.
In my opinin, these particular (phosphor bronze) ones are the best strings money can buy right now.
