Just came across a nifty little deal for any of you acoustic guitar players here on Slickdeals.

EJ16 Light:
https://www.sweetwater.com/store/...gs-10-pack

EJ26 Custom-Light:
https://www.sweetwater.com/store/...gs-10-pack

Small bulk discount on the strings, plus the 2 free tuners are pretty highly regarded and would cost $21.99 on their own.

These 10 packs are the same price everywhere so I guess it's a deal if you want/need the head-stock tuners.

I saved d'addario players points for 25 years and then found out I still didn't have enough points for anything. Just saying...

For a little more you can find 25 sets of unbranded 80/20 or phosphor bronze Martin factory bulk strings, and get a better selection of gauges.

They are amazing. As a primarily classical guitar player, I love them on my Martin dreadnought.

What is the advantage to steel & silk? Are they only good for a particular kind of music? I've been playing for about a year and a half and i primarily play classic rock and grunge. I'm always looking for something that sounds better haha

Silk and steels have less string tension which is inherent to their design; they have a silk and steel core unlike regular guitar strings which have a purely steel core. They are much easier to fret and play compared to traditional steel guitar strings.

As a trade off, they don't carry as much tonality and are much warmer than steel strings (they lack a lot of high-range clarity). They also only come in extra-light gauge (from what I've seen).

They're almost like a semi-steel version of classical guitar strings.
