These seem to wear a good bit longer than traditional PB strings, and the low end is a little cleaner. I'm still experimenting with the standard light set v bumping up the two unwound strings to 17 and 13 similar to the Elixir HD set. But either way, they feel great, sound great, and last.

I saw these strings being used by Julian Lage on his custom Collins that just recently came out, so I put them on my 1991 Olson. Wow, these string are fully bodied and even from bass to treble. One of my fav chords to play is an Emaj9 w/in a 1-6-2-5 progression and these nickel bronze strings fit the bill quite nicely!
Put the set on my acoustic guitar just last week and it made all the difference! The old strings were quiet and dull so when i replaced them the guitar sounded new and now it projects like a canon. These are excellent strings and with the sale, it was like a steal.
My usual go-to strings for my Martin D-18GE is the Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze's or the Martin Retros. Between the two, I prefer the retros, as they allow the woody sound of the GE's mahogany to shine through. Enter the D'Addario's NB's: now I get greater projection and slightly better clarity. I feel like the woody tone of remains, but I gain some balance. We'll see how long they last!
