hi , i have to agree with mot being a fan of elixer strings. After a few years of using martin strings (Medium guage) on my 310 Taylor, i was talked into tryin out these elixer strings. They were to transform my guitar, and they did, i would say the general sound of my guitar is a fairly bright dry sounding dread. with gr8 string defonition, unfortunatly the elixers totally killed it. I could not live with them at all and i removed them in less than 24 hours and went back to the martins.
I,m not gonna say that they are bad etc. as us guitar players are fickle, and the acoustic guitar is something that is a personal thing, i know some gr8 players who use eilxers and they do sound gr8.
so to round up try them you may like them or hate them, just find out for yourself.
btw when my L32 12 comes il ltry a set and see what happens
