Rating and Reviews: D'Addario EJ16 Strings

The D'Addario EJ16 Phosphor Bronze acoustic strings sound great and last a while. With a high-carbon steel core, the D'Addario EJ16s are highly durable.

Sound: Bright,defined,with plenty of sustain..but has a little more string tension the tone tends to be brassy and lacks warmth needs a better balance across all six strings ok for brightening a cheaper acoustic but not what I would record with perhaps the core to wrap ratio on the strings needs to be adjusted Ease of Use: a little stiffer to play Quality: all six strings don't balance well Value: average value Manufacturer Support: D'Addario is ok, but don't respond well to criticism of their products The Wow Factor: nice packaging,shiny strings don't deliver Overall: I will replace it very soon...can't stand the brassy tone and stiff feel

Sound: the sound is great. i take one mark off because they do a bit of a squeaking noise when you move your fingers. Feature: the coloured ends make sure that you dont mess up by putting them in the wrong spot. Quality: theyre made to last . its just that small squeaking sound that irritates me when you move your fingers. Value: very much worth the money. Manufacturer Support: daddario is my favourite line of strings. The Wow Factor: i have it already you. Overall: its mostly good.

Sound: Overall, these strings are fine for a beginner or a backup acoustic, but they are just too dull and lifeless if you are a gigging musician. Keep a set on hand since they are cheap, but step up to the EXP line if you want a good sound.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
