I’ll advise not to buy, my hunt for a great sounding long lasting coated string continues, and for them barely lasting 3 weeks (and a 10 day break from playing in there), just buy the much cheaper uncoated strings or get elixirs which actually do last a good while.
I’ve been a long time user of Elixir strings and have tried so many others over the years but I’ve always preferred the feel and the tone of the Elixirs.
I’ve put these XS strings on my Faith Neptune legacy acoustic and Wow!! What a great tone and such a nice balanced sound.
After 3 days playing them I can definitely say I will be sticking with these D’addario XS strings in the future.
They are Slightly more expensive than my usual strings but equally worth it.
I didn’t even stretch the strings after putting them on, I just tuned up and started playing and they haven’t gone out of tune once.
I’ll update after a few weeks or more and see if they hold their tone and brightness.
They look like Elixir, sound similar to similarly specced Elixir and are about the same price.
I prefer the feel of Elixir though as I slide and slur strings. That said, if and when the price drops to give them an advantage, I might look again.
