These strings are great. Got them when I got my 1st guitar because I was recommended by a friend to get these. Since then, I’ve tried various brands and types like 80/20, coated, non-coated and I’ve always come back to these and have never complained, or switched them out until they wore out unlike some sets that I’ve had. They feel balanced, sound great, and last long. They’re great if you’re starting out or if you’ve been playing a long time. A lot of artists use these. I’ve had a lot of these sets and never broke one. So for sure, they’re reliable. They make any acoustic sound good, the way it’s supposed to. I’ve played all types of music with these. They’re easy on your fingers because they’re a light gauge, but don’t sound weak. Great strings and have never regretted or doubted buying them. If u want get the 3 or 10 set n save yourself some $$$ in the long run lol.
