Bright sound and softer to touch
March 11, 2020
Their sound and feeling is in between regular 80/20 bronze strings and traditional silk & steel strings.
They sound bright, feel softer than regular 80/20 bronze not as much as traditional silk & steels.
Lasts as much as an uncoated 80/20 bronze strings.

Easier to play 80/20s with similar sound
January 10, 2020
I've been doing a comparison of silk & steel strings from various brands. I would say that the Earthwood 80/20 strings sound similar to regular 80/20 strings but they're a bit easier to play. Definitely not in the same boat as the Martin MA130S strings in terms of play-ability, but they are noticeably lighter feeling than regular strings. I generally prefer the sound of phosphorus bronze, but if you like chimey/boomy 80/20 and you want a little less string tension I would go with these.
  • - Basically lighter tension 80/20s
  • - Not as soft feeling as MA130S

believe me ive tried alot of strings... first impressions are they are soft easy on the fingers almost feel ..but obviously a 13 56 guy never thought i would like the lighter strings but these things are on the top of my list...let the strings settle down for 1 week then enjoy ,,, the awesome feel and ive never been motivated to do a review before,,,,,

I bought these because my fingers were hurting. They are soft, but still livelier than regular silk and steel, but duller than standard 80/20 bronze. Would recommend these to people who's fingers hurt or who like a semi dull tone.

Nothing else like these!

They seem to be both warm and clear and articulate at the same time. I think it's the unusual combination of silk wrapping (for warmth) and the 80/20 bronze (for brightness). Honestly nothing else like these strings out there. After trying practically every acoustic string on the market I think I finally found "my strings". Give them a try, I think you'll be a convert too!
