Nice strings, new favorite
These are now my go-to strings for a Martin CEO7 (00). I like the enhanced mids and overall warmer tone of the nickel strings. S&B service/price is always great.

Great strings
These have become my go-to strings for flatpicking. I use medium gauge and just cannot get the same satisfying tone with phosphor bronze or 80/20. I have also been using them on a cedar and East Indian rosewood guitar for fingerstyle: contrary to logic they sound better than other strings. I have one guitar they just do not sound at all good on, so I use phosphor bronze on it. They really do last a long time, they don't turn my fingers black, they tune up well, and are easier to fret than same gauge bronze based strings.
ProsTone Longevity Good price easy to play
ConsNot for every guitar, you just have to try them.

john pearce nickel wound acoustics are great
These strings are really different in feel and tone. I can see somebody really disliking them if they like the chime and ring of brand new bronze or phosphor bronze strings. These are not about the chime -- they are about the fundamental tone. I have put these on my Martin 000 12 fret cutaway Merle Haggard and they really bring out a vintage woody vibrating and warm sustained tone. They feel looser than other strings as well. On this guitar the volume is indistinguishable from other strings of the same gauge. I put them on my all mahogany 12 fret 00 Santa Cruz and I haven't decided whether I like them on that guitar or not. Past reviews extoll the virtues of nickel on mahogany but I have to say the change from PB on the 12 fret all mahogany is not necessarily a positive one. It sounds a little different but the volume seems to be slightly stifled. I'll try it a while longer, but I think I'll probably stick to PBs with that guitar. I guess the surprise is that the larger spruce/rosewood guitar is the one that these strings definitely improve.
ProsGreat tone. Great price value. They don't tarnish and seem to hold up longer than other uncoated strings. Also, thanks for the quick free Labor Day shipping special.
ConsNothing.
