If you like string changes
RiccaFerr, 17.02.2021
I purchased the item for testing and also because Elixirs were not available at that time.
The major "problem" is that the good sound quality does not take longer to fade away.
I regret this purchase.
Definitely the best strings for me are Elixirs.

Perfect

I couldn't find anything to complain about. They last long, their tone lasts long, and they are comfortable to play.

Daddario, c'est beau !
Dav5150, 22.01.2020
Ce sont les cordes qui étaient montée sur ma D'Angelico Tammany Excel.... donc j'ai conservé les mêmes cordes puisque le son me convenait... Après plusieurs décennies de cordes Martin, je suis donc passé à Daddario, et surement pour quelques décennies aussi ! Le son général est propre, équilibré, en tous cas, parfaitement adapté à mon jeu aux doigts ou en strumming, et surement aussi à ma guitare ! Je recommande !

Sehr zufrieden
Göcki, 15.07.2020
Ich spiele eine OM der Vintage Serie von Furch. Bis jetzt habe ich immer die Besaitung ab Werk verwendet (diese kommen von Elixir). Im grossen und ganzen eine gute Wahl. Irgendwas fehlte mir aber. Da habe ich den Versuch gewagt D'Addario's zu probieren. Der Klang passt mir bis jetzt sehr. Ich persönlich empfinde den Klang meiner Gitarre mit den D'Addario's als voller und runder (verwende weder eine PA noch ein Amp, einfach nur unplugged). Vom Gefühl her konnte ich bis anhin keine Unterschiede feststellen. Ich kann diese Saiten uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Bezüglich Preis/Leistung kann und will ich nichts sagen. Habe diese erst sehr kurz im Einsatz. Zudem bin ich zu Gunsten eines guten Tones auch bereit diese Saiten ab und zu zu wechseln (ich persönlich erwarte nicht das Saiten 6 Monate halten, bin mit 2 - 3 Monaten schon sehr zufrieden). Viel Spass beim Spielen.
Update vom 27.10.2020: Die Saiten lassen früher als erwartet nach. Hauptsächlich die Basssaiten klingen schon sehr bald dumpf und unschön.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
