These strings rock, not perfect for gigs in my opinion... but perfect for the home, and ideal for scenarios ( like damp winters, or sweaty hands )
Elixirs are on my acoustics 99% of the year, and the cost is worth it because they hold-on longer before losing brightness, compared with every other brand I've tried....
If you're unsure about what acoustic strings to buy:
- buy these
- buy a string-winder ( item no.: 122787 )
You will be able to change your strings slightly slower than with normal strings, at a marginally higher cost. You will only lose out tonally, if you wait too long to change strings ( 2-8 weeks depending upon usage, and cleaning, storage )
