Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on March 15, 2020
I started playing the guitar 3 months ago. I bought one that’s suitable for beginners at my local music shop and have been using that ever since. I try to practice whenever I can, usually in the evenings after the kids have had dinner. It can be distracting if they’re being hyper (my 4 & 6 year olds never seem to run out of energy), but it’s the only time I can really play. My fingers would hurt but I thought it was just a matter of having to get used to it. Well that problem never went away so I did some research and found out that it might be due to my strings.

I asked my guitar instructor for some recommendations and he told me to get these strings. He also told me about 
these earplugs  which help filter out background noise so I can focus - they actually do seem to help. Anyways I tried to get these strings locally but they didn’t have it at the store that I usually go to so I bought it online from amazon. I don’t have prime membership so it took a few days to get here but I was okay with that since I managed to get it while it was on sale. One pack comes with three sets and I got it for under $15 so I feel like I got a pretty good deal.

I’ve never bought any type of guitar string before aside from the ones that came with my instrument so I can’t compare them that well with others but from what I can tell the quality is great. I also noticed on the packaging that it’s made in the USA so that’s always a good sign. It took me a little while to switch the strings but that’s just me being an amateur and has nothing to do with the actual product.

Once I put them on, they had a nice balanced sound. There’s a noticeable difference on how they feel compared to the old ones I had. It makes such a big difference when I’m practicing…my fingers don’t hurt nearly as bad. People say that they also produce a better tone and I believe it.

The only thing I didn’t like about it was the packaging. The neon yellow color is nice but each set comes in a plastic bag that you have to tear apart. It’s not a zip lock design or anything so you’re kind of forced to use all of the strings at once once you’ve opened them. This wasn’t a problem for me since I was replacing all of mine anyway but I can see how it can be annoying for someone who only wants to replace one. You’d need to find a secure place to put it or something.

Overall however I am still happy with my purchase. I was worried that guitar strings would be expensive but fortunately that wasn’t the case and they’re actually pretty affordable. I don’t know how long these ones will last me but if everything is good I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another pack when I have to. Would I recommend them? Yes…but I’m not sure I’m in a position to actually recommend anything yet. There are probably a lot more people out there who know more about these products than me. From my experience so far however, they work great.
