"Stop wasting time and money and get EXP's"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I switched for a while to Martin SP's. For awhile I was getting breakage at a higher rate then was acceptable But an rep of D'Addario gave me two sets and they lasted a good while so I returned to the fold as it were.
The strings aren't as bright as an 80?20 but I don't want that, what they do is stand up to weeks of hard playing without breaking and retain their tone, just keep 'em clean and they are a great value.
Colored ball ends, and the packing though when you open for individual strings in a dark club it still can get a bit hairy, but still easier than most to find what you're looking for.
Ease of Use
I play long gigs, up to 2 a day and sometimes up to 6 hours, these strings along with my Taylor allow me to play for long stretches without completely fatiguing my hand.
On occasion I've had some breakage, but no more then expected and I play on the shore so salty air can corrode strings rather quickly.
yes, but they ain't cheap!
Manufacturer Support
The rating is one of expectation, I have met employee's of D'Addario and all have been most supportive. I have not dealt with customer help dept's.
The Wow Factor
I won't comment on "sex Appeal" but these are a working musician's friend, They are a value added item and make life a little easier.
