Item Description

Ovation Adamas guitar strings are very well-known but can be hard to find. Most music stores don't stock them. Don't worry, we've got 'em.

Designed from the inside out for balanced performance in tone and feel, Adamas Phosphor Bronze wrap wire produces a rich, full sound with even tone throughout the harmonic range. Their Composite GaugingTM technique utilizes core and wrap wire of identical size so that neither part of the string dominates the various modes of string vibration. Thus, the strings vibrate more consistently and with greater amplitude to produce a sharper, more precise tone.

Love These Strings

In stock, shipped promptly and accurately. These are the strings that my 90s Ovation Elite Standard had installed from the factory. So thrilled to have access to them. Only minor complaint is that the environmental packaging doesn't separate the strings which is a touch annoying, but it doesn't take away from how great the strings sound and feel on the guitar they were meant to be on!

I remember first buying Adamas strings back 40 years ago (yes, I am getting old!!!!) and really loved them back then. Since then, I have used pretty much every make, model and string material there is on the market and the quality today of most strings in outstanding. So, for nostalgic reasons, I thought I would give Adamas a try and I have to say, they are amazing!!! They really are a perfect match for my Larrivee LV-03R, they are loud and balanced, brining out the best the guitar has to offer. I can't speak to how long they last, I only put them on today but I suspect they will last as long as most uncoated strings. Regardless of how long they last, I am lovin' the sound comin' from my Larrivee!!! Time to go and play some more!
  • Price, very reasonable
  • Packaging -- sealed corrosion protection
  • Feel --- can't verify, but they feel like lower tension than most strings
  • None yet

Can't ask for any better quality in an acoustic guitar string. They feel great and last. Stay in tune and gives the great sound to an acoustic electric guitar.
  • Best in sound and performance.
  • A bit difficult to find.
