Tone and durability of these strings
Reviewed in Australia on 27 December 2019
The strings that I thought I ordered were an Elixir medium gauge 12 string set. A friend had told me they were available through amazon. What arrived were 3 six string sets. I guess I just read "Medium gauge" and thought 12 string.
Anyway, I've known for years these are excellent strings. I discovered a set in excellent condition on a 12 string I'd retired about 3 years ago. They held their tune, they were still bright and had that Elixir piano chime that I like on a 12 string.
Well, I used strings from an Elixir light 12 string set to make up the medium set I wanted. It's everything I was looking for. It's just a pity that Elixir does not produce them any more.
I am also using one of these sets on a 6 string and again they have a deep chime that really suits my finger picking style. I like to tune the guitar down to D as I do with the 12 string .
I also notice a more comfortable action with these. Some bronze strings I use can be quite hard to finger.
All up, these are great strings and I compliment Amazon for a very rapid December delivery in what can be a very bad time for mail and courier services.
