Silky smooth

If you're looking for authentic golden era sound for smaller parlor sized guitars, these are the strings you want. Light gauge with smooth appearance. Warm tone ideal for fingerpicking or flatpicking. These are not strong sounding booming strings, but give a higher quality tone.

I have been using these strings on my Takamine acoustic guitar for a while now ,they made the guitar really nice to play with a beautiful warm tone , I tried phosphorus bronze strings in between once ,could not get them of quick enough to go back to these strings.

Great beginner strings

As a beginner, I switched to these strings for a softer feel on my fingers. So far so good. The sound is warm and the strings are a lot more gentle on newby digits.
