My grandmother bought an acoustic in Japan in 1973. It was passed down to my father, and then to me. My Dad says that out of the three of us, I have played it the most. I decided to take a look at it and change the strings, fix it up a little. Putting these strings on not only brightened the sound, but made it sound nicer and much more clean.
Great sounding strings, They sound as they sell, warm and bright. Sounds great with my rhythmic and picking style. They don't last too much, but the sound afterwards isn't bad.
I use them whenever I've got to play live, and keep them until next. They're great for either an amateur or bedroom player, and performing as well.
